A beginner sewing course – bring your own sewing machine (or borrow one of mine) and learn how to set it up, wind a new bobbin, check the thread tension, straight stitch and then hand sew or applique decorations. On this course you will create your own designed envelope cushion cover.
Courses are run on Fridays and Sundays and can be either run during the day from 10am to 2pm or in the evening from 6:30pm to 10:30pm. Only 2 spaces are available per session to ensure that everyone gets the attention they need. You should come away happy that you can continue to sew independently.
To allow for personal preference, you will need to bring with you;
- at least 1m of cotton fabric
- a cushion inner of around 45cm square
- a reel of thread
- Your lunch
Tea, coffee and biscuits all included.
I am happy to recommend places to get your supplies should you need help. Minerva Crafts is a great online place to start though.
Courses are run in the town of Westerham, Kent, which is easily accessed by road and has good public transport links. Please get in contact if you need further help in getting to me or would like more details of the course.
