Sewing machine essentials

24th June – – 10 am – 2 pm

Cost: £30

Get the best out of your sewing machine!  This class takes you through the basic core knowledge you should know about your sewing machine. Then it dabbles into the extras your manual doesn’t tell you, using other bits and pieces you have been given with it; trying out stitches you have been afraid to use; so that you come away saying – gosh I didn’t know I would be able to do that and now I can.  Great class, lots of fun – do you know the manufacturers make at least 27 different types of sewing machine needles – which one should you choose? and many other bits of info to make you a better sewist!
