In this workshop you will learn the basics of setting up a sewing machine. You will learn about the different stitches and when best to use them. Once you've had a practice run on some scrap material, we'll put your new skills to practice by creating a simple square cushion cover. You will be working on a beginners sewing machine that is extremely easy and functional to use.
In this class you will learn:
- How to set up a sewing machine
- How to wind a bobbin and insert it into the machine
- Measure, mark and cut your fabric for the cushion cover
- Use of different tools for a cleaner finish
Throughout the session I will share my knowledge and tips with you to help make the process as smoothly and enjoyable as possible.
Classes usually run for 2-3 hours when full.
The sessions are held at Sophie's art studio in Redfern. The building is occupied by talented artists, exhibitions and co-working spaces.
You will leave the class with your new sewing skills, a fab cushion cover and access to our online PDF handout of the class.
Option to purchase a cushion insert for your cover on the day.
No previous knowledge required. This class is for absolute beginners. Please note, this class is not suitable for those who already know the basics of sewing.
All machinery, fabric and tools are provided. Cushion insert not included in price, option to purchase one on the day for $10.
