SEWING BEGINNERS - THURSDAY

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy fabric, and that is pretty close!

Always wanted to learn to sew? Need to refresh your skills or learn new techniques?  In this beginner level course, students will learn the basics of sewing including various stitches and seam finishes, inserting zips and stitching button holes.

Develop an understanding of the sewing process from cutting out your pattern, to laying it out on fabric and of course putting it all together.  Work at your own pace with friendly guidance from our experienced tutor.

  • Students do not need to have any previous knowledge of sewing to attend.
  • The course will start out with getting familiar in the use of the sewing machine and learning the basics.
  • Students will then complete a project as a class.

After completing a class project students will be encouraged to work on their own project. Bring a pattern to class and learn how to sew your project.

Please note: This course will require purchase of the following items which are not included in the course fee:

  • sewing machine*
  • sewing kit  (scissors, thread, pins, tape measure etc )
  • fabric
  • pattern 

*Please contact us if you do not have a personal machine as we have a small number which may be available for use.

Please note: This course will NOT cover pattern making.

Included in the course fee are two bobbins which will be given to you on the first night.

Students seeking to learn pattern-making may be interested in a course at Aorere College https://www.aorerecommed.co.nz/course-details.php?cid=125&cat_id=14
