'Make friends with your sewing machine' with Amanda Jane Ogden

Learn how to use a sewing machine, from scratch, as a complete beginner


This is an absolutely basic course to introduce you to a sewing machine, so you can use it with confidence.  You can come as a complete beginner.

Amanda is a qualified and very experienced Textiles tutor.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

The course covers threading the machine, cleaning it, how to sew, how to select and use stitches, how to wind a bobbin and more.

This is a half-day course delivered as a one-to-one session, so it can be tailored to you individually. The course takes place either at my home in Kent or at my nearby studio. Sewing machine provided.
