On the one day workshop, you will see how you like sewing by using your own machine or one of ours, with assistance, through demonstration and ‘hands on’. The day will teach you what can be achieved with the push of the pedal and controls; how to adjust tensions, select stitches and maintain a machine. You will have the opportunity to make a small cushion to take home. Please say if you’d like to hire a machine. Materials list supplied.
