You'll then be shown how to mark up and cut out your fabric using a simple 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 then no problem just let me know. It has been known for machines to come into the workshop that are 30 years old and still going strong, but if it needs a service then I can give a contact for a Sewing Machine Mechanic to give it a service and some ‘Love’ to get it back up and running again!
