This is a beginners class for those who have never touched a machine before, or not for a long time. Or for those who are self taught but do not actually have much basic knowledge.
You will learn all about tension, stitches, threading up, what threads to use, how to wind bobbins, how to measure and cut fabric, all about seam allowances and making sharp corners as well as lots of hints and tip along the way. Most students come out of this class with a huge grin on their face! No matter how clumsy you think you are, or how scared, you WILL learn to sew, it's guaranteed.
To practice these new skills you will then make a cushion cover. As the class is quite long there will be plenty of time for the knowledge to really sink in and for you to get really creative.
Your Teacher: Jennie has been teaching sewing classes at all levels for over 6 years. She's got a 2 year full time course as well as many city and guilds and online classes under her belt. She's passionate about sewing, super friendly and patient and believes anyone can learn to sew. The classes are small (maximum of 5 people) and are held in a dedicated craft studio in Jennie's leafy garden in Walthamstow, East London
All machines and materials are included and you even get to take home a copy of her sewing handbook In Stitches so you don't have to take any notes!
What's included in the price?
All tools, machines and fabric is included in the class. Tea, coffee and biscuits are on tap all day but please bring a packed lunch as there aren't any real shops nearby. Please also bring soya milk or rooibos tea as these I don't have, I do have tons of herbal tea as well as decaf coffee and tea.
