Let's really get sewing! This beginners two-day intensive course in Sydney is for those who want to get sewing fast.

In this course, bring along your machine and you will learn how to thread your machine, sew some basic stitches and sew a curved line plus hem. We will then tackle your first project, a simple tote bag, to show you construction and seam allowances. We then move onto a basic camisole on Sunday to teach you garment construction. You will leave with both patterns and be able to work on them at home.

What you will learn:

Day one:
- What all those knobs do
- How to change your needle
- How to thread both the bobbin and the machine
- Sew basic straight stitches to the seam allowance and zig-zag the edges

Day two:
Using a camisole as our project, you will learn:
- How to improve those straight seams with the correct seam allowance and zig-zag the edges
- Pattern layout and jargon
- Construction and putting the pieces together in what order
- Troubleshoot basic machine problems

This course is suitable for complete beginners, you will just need to bring your machine in the box!
