Sewing Machine Confidence
Sewing Machine Confidence will show you that your machine can do so much more? Many of us know who to use our sewing machines tend to use them for straight sewing.
Even the old mechanical machines can do far more than expected. On the 4th Saturday of each month Anita will show you a new skill on your sewing machine.
This is not a dressmaking course. But you will learn the skills to make items using a pattern once confident.
During Sewing machine Confidence You will build a book of samples and add your own notes with the help of Anita to ensure you are able to dip into the sampler book at any time and still be able to complete the task at hand. Samples will include all stitches your machine is able to do. Each stitch can be shortened, elongated and widened. You can also use the stitches for free motion embroidery too.
In the morning Anita will demonstrate a new technique for you to practice and in the afternoon you can use this technique to make a small object.
Every Month will be a different technique so you can dip in and out when you fancy it.
Each workshop will have one or more learners at different stages of their development. This makes learning more interesting for everyone.
At the beginning of each workshop You will be asked to ensure your machine is clean and lint free. Also if you have changed the needle. Once this is completed the machine is ready for use. This stage of learning is a vital part of Sewing Machine Confidence.
All Sewing Machines have to be PAT tested. If your machine needs to be tested it can be booked in on your first workshop with the studio. For more information on this contact Anita on [email protected]
