Who is this course for
The Sewing Machine Masterclasses are for people who have been inspired by the latest trend in home sewing, with an interest in clothes-making and a desire to learn. This is an intermediate course ideal for students who can already use a sewing machine and want to spend a day brushing up on advanced sewing techniques and elements of garment construction.
What does this course cover
You will learn a selection of skills needed to be able to make your own clothes.
