A four week course for children aged between 9 and 13 (school year 4/5 to year 8). This course will run on March 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th from 5.30 to 7pm. 


This course is aimed at children who have their own sewing machine or access to a machine at home. This course will introduce your child to the basics of machine sewing and give them the confidence to try projects at home. The class has a limited number of participants and will take place at Creative Space on North Street.


The course is run by myself, a secondary school Design and Technology teacher. I will adjust each class to suit the pace of learning in the group.


We will cover ...

Threading the sewing machine and checking sewing tensions

Winding a bobbin

Sewing using a selection of basic stitches

Sewing different seam types and neatening work

Using decorative stitches and Applique ... plus more!


Each child will leave with a selection of small sew projects (options include hairbands, scrunchies, tote bags and pencil cases). All materials are provided, you just need to bring along your sewing machine.


Before the course:

Please make sure your sewing machine is in good working order as I am unable to service / fix machines that are not working correctly.
