These classes are designed to take the fear out of machine sewing! You will be taught all the basics - how to wind on a bobbin, thread up the machine and make straight seams. 

You'll then be shown how to mark up and cut out your fabric using asimple paper pattern, and then put all your newfound skills together to make a simple sewn-up project. You’ll leave feeling confident and no longer afraid, with a lovely 

item made at ‘Sewstitchcreat8’ workshop! 

All materials and tools are provided. If you would rather use your own machine in the class and it is less than 5 years old, please bring it along.

We offer both evening and daytime individual sessions. Our weekday, daytime sessions are available to block book as a course of six on which you will cover a much wider range of skills and create a different project every week. 

Enjoy a coffee and a busy morning stitching in our lovely workshop with a small group of others. In addition to the basic machine skills outlined above you will learn how to lay and cut out patterns, work with interlinings, wadding and stuffing, insert a zip, make a casing and many other invaluable sewing tips from our lovely, experienced teachers.
