LEARN TO SEW: Back to Basics
A beginners and refreshers sewing class covering all your machine basics, how to thread, sew, troubleshoot tension, change a needle, adjust stitch length / width. You will make 5 completed projects over the course and it will set you up for solo sewing! Work the comfort of your own home on your own machine so you can really get to know it. Detailed instructions, handouts and clear video tutorials.
I run this course in a closed Facebook group, with both recorded videos and regular weekly zoom calls for anyone who is struggling to understand a particular aspect of the teaching that week.
The next class begins on 23th September 2021 for 5 weekly sessions. Each week we will have a live video call on a Thursday evening at 8pm UK time to check in and share progress, and then I will upload the course material for the following weeks. These zooms are entirely optional but are a great way to connect with your fellow classmates and recreate some of the buzz of our popular face to face classes. You get a direct line to our expert Annie for the duration and she will hold your hand and support you as much as you need!
Each session introduces a series of skills for that week, which are consolidated into a weekly project - each of them practical, gift-able and useful!
- Week 1: Get to know your machine - threading, tension and more, sewing in a straight line - make a pincushion
- Week 2: Sewing curves - make a padded heart decoration
- Week 3: Seaming and edging techniques - make a french seamed cushion cover
- Week 4: Applique and bias binding - make your own bunting
- Week 5: Inserting a lining into a 3D Object - make a mug cosy
A comprehensive foundational sewing course, 66 video lessons, one year access and live support as you go - what's not to love!
PLUS we are running a closed cohort for teenagers who would like to learn, so they can learn alongside their peers. Adult parents / carers who would like to learn with them can follow the material at home and attend the Adult zoom session at no extra charge.
