11 – Know Your Sewing Machine – 6th September 2018


This workshop is aimed at total beginners to sewing, or those of you who have had a break from using a sewing machine, and is intended to help you feel more confident with your sewing machine. Angela will teach you all about filling your bobbins, using straight and zigzag stitches, how to change stitch length and width, drop your feed dogs and how to sort out tension issues. You will leave with the confidence to happily use your sewing machine on many more sewing projects. You will practice your skills and make a shopping bag during the workshop.

Please do bring your own sewing machine plus manual, feet, bobbins and cotton thread. If your sewing machine is too heavy you will be able to borrow a studio sewing machine, but please do let me know in advance.

This workshop is from 10:00am to 1:00pm.
