Thursday 28 May 2020

Session: 1


Time: 2.30pm - 6.00pm

Level: Used A Machine Once or Twice

Maximum Class Size: 5

We run children's sewing classes during the school holidays for kids of 8 years and older, our workshops encourage creativity, as well as improving self-confidence, patience and fine motor skills!

If your child has completed our Introduction to Machine Sewing Part 1 - Make An Apron or already knows how to use a sewing machine but wants to develop their skills further, it's time for the next step! During this 3 hour workshop they will accomplish some essential skills that will help them advance to more complicated projects. By the end of the class they will have made a fully lined, zip up back pack with pocket using Ray Stitch fabric, perfect for carrying books & other bits and bobs!

In this class they will cover the following techniques:

  • Thread up a sewing machine (quick recap)

  • Sew straight lines, corners and curves using a seam allowance

  • Cut from a pattern template

  • Insert a zip

  • Attach a pocket

  • Make and attach lining

  • All materials, tools and refreshments are provided. 

    (If your child already owns a sewing machine and would prefer to use that, please bring it along - provided it is less than 10 years old.)
