I frequently teach Adults and children over 8 years old to sew. You will find some of the courses I run available below, however for best results I recommend contacting me so we can discus your needs and the availability of the courses available in the workshops.

New to sewing? This workshop is for complete beginners, or for those who have a machine and no idea how to use it.
We will go through the parts of the machine, how to thread your machine, tension, stitches, and how to wind your bobin.
We will cover basic skills on using your machine, and we will make a bag out of Recycled fabrics for you to take home at the end of the workshop.
