Have you never touched a sewing machine before?  Or have you had a go and the thought of trying again fills you with the fear?  Or has it just been a while and you are feeling a tad rusty?  This course is for you!  A fun day course based on learning to sew using the sewing machine.  

Join the lovely Fiona and get going on a marvellous sewing adventure.  During the day you will cover a whole host of techniques from threading your machine, winding the bobbin, sewing and finishing seams, gathering, applique, inserting a zip, buttonholes and LOADS more. In the afternoon you will learn about the construction of envelope cushions, and finish of the day by stitching up a bag. Fiona will demystifying sewing terms and equipment too!
