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 between 2-3 hours.
The sessions are held at Sophie’s art studio in Redfern. The building is occupied by talented artists, exhibitions and co-working spaces.
You will leave the class with your new sewing skills, a fab cushion cover and exclusive access to our members-only area on our website.
Option to purchase a cushion insert for your cover on the day.
