About the Course

Wanted to sew but have absolutely no idea where to start? Well fear no more - we have the perfect solution!

You can now extend your thread of knowledge with this sewing workshop for beginners. Join Craig and the rest of the Fashion Box team for this three-hour class offering an introduction to domestic sewing machines and overlockers.

You're also welcome to bring your own machine or use the one provided! If you are bringing your own machine please arrive 10 minutes before the start time to set up your machine. Late arrivals will have to use machines provided.

After getting to grips with threading, you'll also have the opportunity to explore different stitching techniques and seams as well as mastering sewing in dreaded zips, all with easy techniques provided by your fashion host.

During the second half of the workshop, you will tackle invisible zips, making a small make up bag / pencil case!

Don't miss out on this fantastic introduction where you're sure to leave understanding the basics of using a sewing machine, and ready to tackle your first garment!
