If you live near to Cheltenham, and would like to sew, why not join us for this relaxing and fun 4 week course. We cover the basics on week one and then progress to making a project each week, covering; all the functions of the sewing machine, how to sew a straight line, tension, changing stitches, what needles to use, making buttonholes, inserting zips to name just a few things!

You can bring along your own machine or have the use of one of mine, all the lovely materials required are included for you, and you will get full written instructions to take home so that you have a reference point when you make more.

Week 1 - Learn the basics of how your machine works, and make a drawstring bag and coasters

Want to review this course?

I learnt to sew on Judi's "Get to know your sewing machine" course, then progressed to the "Intro to dressmaking". I am soo pleased with making my sleeveless top!! Its been on several holidays with me and as I got the pattern to keep, I have made two more at home. Judi is so patient and helpful. Looking forward to doing more.
