KNOW YOUR SEWING MACHINE
Do you have a new sewing machine that you want to learn how to use? Or is your machine sitting in the back of a cupboard gathering dust? Then come along to our flagship 'Know Your Sewing Machine' class!
This course is designed to teach you about your sewing machine and what it can do. Whether you're a beginner or experienced, whether your machine is new or inherited, you will learn how to use it with confidence. Not all sewing machines are the same - and because you bring your own to the class, you will learn very specifically about your machine. We don't complete a project during the class - because the focus of the day is on the machine itself.
We take you through your machine step by step, explaining what each part does. Whether you want to progress into dressmaking, quilting or crafts - this class provides the perfect foundation. It is also a fantastic opportunity to start learning about just what else your machine is capable of doing!
During the class you will learn about:
- Sewing machine threads and needles
- Threading your machine
- Tension - what it does and how to adjust it correctly
- Stitch pattern, length and width
- All the presser feet that came with your machine
- Utility stitches, including over-edging, buttonholes and blind hem
- Invisible zip insertion
- Basic sewing machine maintenance
You will leave feeling knowledgeable and confident that you can use your sewing machine on your own.

- Sewing machine - including all its accessories, presser feet and tools
- Sewing machine thread
