'Learn how to use a sewing machine' with Amanda Jane Ogden



This is an absolutely basic course to introduce you to a sewing machine, so you can use one with confidence.  You can come as a complete beginner. Amanda is a qualified teacher of Textiles (BA and PGCE in Textiles) with many years experience.

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 at my studio next to my home in Ramsgate, Kent. You will be learning on my Bernina sewing machine. (You can bring your own machine along with you, for reference, if you wish.)
