Complete 5 projects in 5 weeks!
This course has been designed with the absolute beginner in mind. We cover the basics of using a sewing machine, sewing straight lines and curves, darts, bias tape making, interfacings, seam finishes, top stitching, sewing pockets and even tackle zips!
We provide everything you need (including a choice of fabrics from across the store for each project), if you have your own sewing machine we recommend bringing it with you, as there is nothing like learning on your own, but if you don't have one yet, you can use one of ours.
