I am so excited to welcome to the studio, Aly Warner from Bobbins Sewing school. Aly will be teaching the fabulous beginner's workshop which encourages you to make a friend of your sewing machine! This class is for absolute beginners and a fantastic course to get you on your way – learn how to thread and operate a sewing machine confidently. Take your samples home with you and have everything you need to refer to in the future. This is one of Aly's favourite workshops, as it’s like teaching someone to drive, as soon as you get it, you’re on your way. Class level- Total beginner / Refresher What we will cover in this session: We aim to cover the list below, but depending on how many questions you may have we may not get a chance to cover everything – please let us know if there is something specific you really want help with before you leave which we haven’t covered.
