1 Day Beginners Sewing Class (Part 1)



£ 132.00

Can’t find the time for our 2 day Beginners class? We have the answer and have decided to try it out in 2 parts! This class is the equivalent of DAY 1 of the 2 day course.

Always wanted to try your hand at sewing but have no idea where to begin? Or perhaps you are looking to reignite a love after a long ol’ break… That dusty machine of yours needs some TLC! Book yourself into our Beginner’s Course and you’ll be sewing in no time!

Our Beginner’s Course is suitable for never-touched-a-sewing-machine-before-beginners, and returning sew-ers alike. The classes are focused on building your machine confidence up, teaching you useful, transferable skills that will set you up for a successful sewing journey in a super friendly and sociable environment.

The class begins at the most basic level; learning how to thread up a machine, the ins and outs of the machine and then we’ll get cracking with making! You’ll leave the class with two sewing projects under your belt: a tote bag and bunting!  These projects have been carefully picked to teach you a wide range of what we believe are the most useful skills for a sew-er. You’ll use them again and again until you’re a pro!

There’s no need to bring your own machine to class – at Sew Confident we supply the goods, including tea, coffee and unlimited biscuits!

This class runs over ONE DAY and this is the FIRST PART of the Beginners course.

After completing this course we would recommend the second day of the Beginners course to really build your confidence and tackle zips, we promise they aren’t as hard as they sound! So jump in and we will get you where you want to be in no time whether that is making your own clothes, sewing your own homewares or making amazing quilts!

What to bring:

Please bring with you a basic sewing kit. All your fabric will be provided for this class. You can add our sewing kit to the basket and pick it up in class.

You do not need to bring a sewing machine as we have a studio full of them!

Yes! This class starts at the most basic level of sewing, so don’t worry if you’ve never even looked at a machine before- we’re here to teach you!

Of course! Our studio is equipped with sewing machines for use in all our classes, and we don’t give you any ‘homework’. Alternatively, if you’d like to bring your own machine to test out and get to grips with you are absolutely more than welcome to!

Absolutely. We start at the very beginning by learning how to thread a machine, but by the end of the course you’ll come away with 4 different projects - including putting in zips! If you have already made clothes or more complex items before you might be good enough to skip the beginners. Feel free to get in touch and we can help you!
