Beginners sewing - envelope cushion covers

X

Description

This class is suitable for beginners to sewing. Ideally you will have completed my "Get to Know Your Sewing Machine" workshop first, as you will need to be able to wind your own bobbin and thread your machine. (If you would like help with this, please get in touch as I can also offer one to one sessions prior to the class).

This workshop is suitable for anyone who would like to progress from the basics and make an easy project, or anyone who has not sewn for a while and would like a refresher.

Cushion covers are a great first project, and a lovely skill to be able to make them for your home or as gifts.

Included in the price are full written instructions to help you when you go on to make lots more cushions!!

We will also learn how to make a buttonhole for your cushion back, if your machine has this capability.

Fabric is also included, you will be emailed a selection to choose from upon booking your workshop.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via CraftCourses using the 'message the tutor' button.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

I had a fantastic morning on the Roman Blind making course. Very informative for a complete novice like myself. My mum also came with me and she has some experience of making soft furnishings but also found the morning extremely useful. Really is a great course to do for all abilities. Judi is an excellent teacher and although it is a group activity it really does feel like one to one tuition. We will be back for a curtain making course, thank you Judi

As a complete Novice I was a little apprehensive but everything was explained and there was no pressure. Very pleased with what I achieved. Instruction paperwork to bring home will be most helpful. Thank you.

Terrified at first to make blinds but the course went at an easy pace and gradually I started to see the picture of how to make them. The tutor was very patient and happy to answer any questions. I left there feeling very happy that now I could make a roman blind.

Response from Sew Make it:

So pleased Jill that you were able to relax and enjoy making your sample blind. It's not too scary after all is it? I'm sure the notes and easy calculation methods will help you when you make your own blind at home too. Would love to see any photos. Thanks so much for the feedback. Judi

Before attending - I did not think we would be able to make a blind in the time - but in fact we did!
Judi was very patient and helped everyone.
A really good day with great tips and notes to take away.
I'm looking out for the next courses to sign up to.
Thank you.

Response from Sew Make it:

Thanks for the feedback Karen, really glad you enjoyed the day. Looking forward to seeing photos of your new blinds! New course dates coming soon.... Judi

I love Judi's workshops. I recently did the blinds course and although I have made them before, Judi gave lots of tips and really practical useful information to help with the whole process. I would highly recommend regardless of your level of skill but think confident beginners would learn lots.

Response from Sew Make it:

Thank you Maxine, it was lovely to see you again and hope that the tips will come in handy for your next blind making project :) Judi

Really happy with this course. It completely delivered what it promised and more. Judi was a great teacher and a lot of fun. She went out of her way to adapt the course for my wants and take me through all that I needed very patiently. I like the zoom 1-2-1 in these times and pleased that it worked so well. I'll be looking for more like this, and definitely more from Judi. Thank you.

I really enjoyed the workshop yesterday, it was well worth the distance travelled. You are very good at teaching and explaining how to make the blinds. I felt very confident when I left that I would be capable of making the blinds on my own at home. Which hasn't always been the case when I've done previous workshops elsewhere. I wouldn't hesitate to do another one of your workshops. I found your workshop on craft courses and was so happy I did.

Attended the Roman blind workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it. A nice small group with plenty of relaxed time to work at ones own pace and for Judi to give each one ample time to explain things. Came away with completed project and clear printed instructions . I’m looking forward to trying another course . Thank you .

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.

I normally use my machine for quilting & have never done any dressmaking. This was a superb workshop,everything was explained carefully & Judi seemed to know exactly when one of us needed some extra help. I had never put in a zip or made a buttonhole but I now feel confident to tackle both & will certainly enrol on more of Judi's courses.

Really enjoyed my first attempt at dressmaking. Everything was explained really well, and we had our own pattern to keep. I feel more confident to try other things, and will definitely be coming to more of your workshops, looking forward to making a top on Saturday. Thank you

Simply all it should be. Lovely location, easy access from motorway, small group, very clear instruction from Julie at a pace which suited all, one stage at a time. Judi had time to assist everyone when they needed it. She is a very good tutor. We finished 2 zip bags on the day, most other workshops I've gone to need the work to be finished as home. I will definitely keep an eye out for more workshops.

Response from Sew Make it:

Thank you Di, it was lovely to meet you and Chrissie, your bags were amazing! look forward to seeing you again soon :)

This was my second session and I loved it. Judi explains things clearly and she makes sure she has time to help everyone. I don’t have my own machine yet and was able to use Judis which was great. I loved the fact I could make something I was proud of and take home to use. I am brand new to machine sewing and fully recommend.

Response from Sew Make it:

Thank you Lesley, your cushion looked lovely with the co-ordinating buttons , and so neat! See you again soon
