A beginner sewing course - bring your own sewing machine and learn how to set it up, wind a new bobbin, check the thread tension, straight stitch and then hand sew or applique decorations.

Very good experience! Emily is a good tutor, she explained all the elements of my sewing machine. Really enjoyed my day with her and liked making my cushion cover with her. She has a flexible approach and helped me make the cushion cover giving me confidence all along. I finished the class feeling knowledgeable about my machine and excited to use it more frequently.
Thank you Emily for this lovely experience.
I really enjoyed my day with Emily learning to use a sewing machine and I'm so so chuffed with my beautiful cushion! A relaxed, informal class in friendly surroundings and Emily is so kind and patient. I treated myself as a birthday present and it was so lovely to spend a few hours doing something just for me. Would definitely recommend and I will be back!
I absolutely loved classes with Emily. She's such a lovely person and a great teacher. I came to the lesson scared of my machine but after the class I wasn't scared any more. I highly recommend Emily to everyone who would like to learn sewing!
