About the event

Sessions will consist of:

Session 1 (7th March) - Getting to know your sewing machine, taking you through the basics of setting up and working a sewing machine. You will practice setting up your machine and using different stitches and feet, finishing off by making a small tote bag with button closure.

Session 2 (14th March) - In this session we will further explore the uses of our sewing machines to practice what was learnt in the first session and to add to it. We will look at how to make a pair of tab top curtains and finish off by making an envelope cushion cover with optional piping. 

Session 3 (21st March) - In this session we will look at dressmaking and how we can use the machine skills we have learnt to make items of clothing. I will go through how to use patterns, the markings on patterns and what they mean and take a look at a pattern from each of the 'Big 4' (Simplicity, Burda, Vogue and Butterick) so you can get an idea how each work. I will also go though some independent pattern makers that are available and the advantages/disadvantages of using them over the big 3. We will look at the different methods for cutting out fabric using patterns and how you would go about selecting fabrics to use with different patterns. You will also have an opportunity to have a brief look at working an overlocker and have a go yourself using one. 

Session 4 (28th March) - In this session we will go over everything we have done in the last sessions and have an opportunity to carry on with projects started in the last sessions or start a new one using the knowledge gained with guidance from myself.

The first 3 session will be held in the meeting room at Bardsey Village Hall, the last session will be held in the meeting room of Callister Hall (directly over the road from Bardsey Village Hall).
