Course Overview

3 1/2hr BEGINNERS SEWING TASTER Adults and Children from 10 yrs

If you want to start sewing or just give yourself a confidence boost then this is the course for you. With gentle guidance and through a simple bag making project, I will show you how to set up a sewing machine, experiment with stitches and seams and get to grips with some basic terminology. This is a great way of gaining confidence on the machine and to set you up for future projects.

Bring your own machine or use one of mine. Please remember to bring your machine instruction manual with you!

“Had a brilliant 3 hours sewing induction with Ginn on Wednesday evening. Having never touched a machine before she showed me how to set up, wind bobbins and all the essentials as well as practising stitches and then creating a shopping bag. Ginn is patient and methodical and her enthusiasm is infectious. Really would recommend to anyone even the true first timers like me.”

“ I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you so much for giving me the gift of sewing Ginn. It has become the love of my life. I sew all the time, I never go out anymore if I’m off work and only spend on material! You have taught me so much in such a short time that I can now make so many things. I’ve made a friend a coat for Christmas and it looks pretty good if I do say so myself. So proud! Xxx Anita ”
