This course is for those who want to learn to sew by machine. It is also for those who have not sewn for a while and are returning to using their sewing machine. It is suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience.
Everyone will learn all about their sewing machine and how to use all the controls. They will learn about different threads and types and sizes of needle to be able to select the correct needle and thread for a project. They will also learn how to maintain the machine and what to do if it goes wrong.
Every week sewing skills will be developed while making something different. All the skills learnt can then be used in whatever area of sewing is of interest.
This course is also ideal for those who would like to take other courses but need experience with a sewing machine before joining.
