Learn to sew over three weeks. Each week you'll learn new skills in your 3 hour weekly workshop. Total of 9 hours tuition.

Learn to sew from the very beginning as we take you through all the basics of sewing. You'll get an understanding of the sewing machine, machine sewing techniques and start trouble shooting problems at the machine yourself. You'll get to know what you want in a sewing machine if you haven't yet purchased one. We'll introduce you to terminology, tools, patterns, fabric selection, cutting technique and achieving professional results.

What You Will Learn:
Week 1: Threading and setting up your machine, using sewing kit tools, getting familiar with the terminology.
Week 2: All about zippers and inserting an exposed zip, understanding and using interfacing, the anatomy of fabric.
Week 3: Tracing out, cutting technique, sewing at seam allowance, bagging out a lining.

What You Get
- Detailed handouts at each weekly workshop.
- Experienced and friendly teachers to take you through everything from the very beginning.
- No need to bring anything. We have smooth running Janome machines (supplied by Statewide Sewing Centres).

What you'll be making:
Week 1: A felt lined fabric wallet perfect for your ipod or mobile (see one made in class - click here)
Week 2: A zippered toiletries case with interfacing (see one made in class - click here)
Week 3: A fully lined sling bag with boxed out corners (see one made in class - click here)
