Machine Sewing

Meets at: Newtown Community Centre
Weeks 2 and 4, Thursdays, 10.00 - 12.00 noon

Welcome, if you can answer yes to either (A) or (B)

(A) Beginners group: I would like to learn to sew with a sewing machine. Learn at your own pace in a relaxed atmosphere.

(B) I am able to use a sewing machine but would like to spend time with like-minded people who enjoy sewing.

It is not necessary to own a machine as sewing machines are available at the class.

Examples of support available for group A

1.Learn how to thread the machine
2.Make a small bag which can be used as a make-up bag or a bag to keep sewing notions. You will learn how to follow a simple pattern and insert a zip, whilst developing transferable skills for larger projects such as a skirt or dress
3.Make a bag for life - learn how to do a french seam, again developing transferable skills required in making underwear or pyjamas
4.Learn how to use a pattern and adjust if necessary, to fit your personal measurements
5.Make a pair of pyjama trousers using french seams (developing the skills to make a pair of trousers)
6.Make a pyjama jacket using french seams, setting in a sleeve, attaching a facing and a collar, and making buttonholes (build up your skills to make a blouse or shirt)

B People who are able to sew

Exchange ideas and knowledge with others in the group and continue with your personal projects.

Above all, enjoy sewing in a relaxed atmosphere with like-minded people.
