About the Course

Let us set you on the way with your sewing journey with this Intro into Sewing workshop. Once you've done it you'll never look back!

Week 1 Sew me a...button up cushion
Starting with the basics we will show you how to thread up a machine, how to pin and cut fabric, sew straight and make a beautiful cushion with an envelope back and covered button.

Week 2 Sew me a...throw it all in bag
Progressing on from Workshop 1 we will show you how to deal with curved seams, a patch pocket and how to sew in handles to create the perfect bag to throw everything into.

Week 3 Sew me a...zippy make up bag
Develop your skills even further with a cute zippy makeup bag, where we will show you how to conquer zips and deal with under-stitching and linings.

Week 4 Sew me a...needlebook
If you've been a super speedy sewer over the first three weeks then you might have time to sew yourself a pretty needlebook. You can try a few decorative techniques on this smaller project to start off your new sewing kit.

"Learnt lots of new skills and love the fact that you take something home after each lesson. Rachel is extremely helpful, patient and gives clear instructions."

Want to review this course?

I did this course a while ago now. I had always wanted to learn to sew, but I didn't know where to start, as I couldn't even thread a sewing machine. So this seemed the perfect course for me. After my first evening, I went home with a cushion, not only had a sewn it, I had learnt how to appliqué on to it and made my own button ( I was so proud). Couldn't wait for the following week! Since finishing this course, I have attended others and learnt so much. Have made lots new friends whilst attending workshops here.

Response from Sew Me Something:

Thats really good to hear! These Introduction courses are designed to work just like this; teaching the basics and giving people the confidence they need to begin sewing on their own. Thanks Sharon!
