Want to get to grips with your sewing machine, with one of our new 'Letterbox Kits', and a tutor, live from the comfort of your own home?
This workshop is perfect for beginners that have recently acquired a sewing machine, and want to attend a fun quilting 'sew-along'project, making a saucepan pot holder for your kitchen.
In the first hour, we will cover the basics of the sewing machine, from setting your dials to threading it correctly. We will complete a few sewing samples, to practice moving fabric under the machine, and creating a seam using the seam guides on your machine.
And more importantly, Craig will give you valuable tips, for continuously 'trouble free sewing'!
In the second hour we will focus on our project, the pot holder. Craig, your host will show you how to attach the wadding (padding) and sew together your heat pad. Helping you understand how quilting effects are achieved.
Once you have constructed your heatpad, we can then go a little 'freestyle' on the design you would like to create on your pad! Creating your own fun, personalised project.
Throughout the session, your host will be there for you to ask any questions you may have.
This workshop is also offered as an in-house workshop should you wish to try out sewing machines before you commit to purchasing one.
