Who is it for?

All beginners who either have a sewing machine but don't know where to start, or don't have one yet and would like to see what sewing is all about. We also recommend this introductory course to returning sewists who might  have lost confidence and need a bit of a refresher. This call doesn't require any previous sewing experience.

What will you learn?

  • Introduction to machine safety
  • Different functions of your sewing machine
  • How to thread it
  • Changing the needle
  • Winding the bobbin
  • How to sew with straight stitch in straight line, curves and around the corners
  • What accessories are essential to begin your sewing adventure
  • Fabric walk-through and best fabric-needle combinations
  • Complete your first project (e.g. tote bag, small toy or home decoration item)


Sewing machines and all accessories are provided in class.

In order to complete your first project you will need 1 m of cotton material. Project fabric packs will be available to purchase during the class for  €5 -  €10.

If you would like to choose your own material but not sure where to go and what to choose, or simply fancy a great day out, we recommend our Fabric Shopping Trip experience.

You are welcome to bring your own machine, but please let us know during the booking the make and model of the machine. If you choose to bring your own machine please ensure you arrive 15 min earlier to set it up and don't forget to bring the instruction manual.
