Machine Sewing for Beginners

Sat 13th Nov 2021
2.30 – 5.30pm

The Warehouse, Hampton Wick

2 spaces

In this three hour workshop you’ll be given a step-by-step introduction to machine sewing, whilst creating your own beautiful and unique festive bunting (or another theme if you’d prefer!).

Starting with an introduction to the sewing machine – how to wind a bobbin, thread the machine and sew in straight lines, you’ll then move on to cutting out your fabric and learn how to sew it together to make a length of jolly bunting.

All materials and use of sewing machines are included, though we do recommend that you bring your own machine if you have one, to help you to familiarise yourself with it better.

We also provide lots of tea, coffee and home made cake.

After a fun afternoon, you’ll leave with your finished bunting (together with all the know-how to make more at home).

We’ll have a choice of different cotton fabrics, but do feel free to bring along your own if you prefer.

Cornelia Costeanu is a very experienced and well-known instructor, having been teaching sewing to both adults and children for over 10 years. With a degree in interior design, she is passionate about recycling, vintage fashion and is rather addicted to her sewing machines (currently owning 7!).

In the event that the class is unable to go ahead due to the ongoing covid-19 virus situation, we will of course offer all participants the option of an alternative date or refund.
