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 run for 2-3 hours.
