If you are looking to start sewing with a machine but have no experience, then this course is perfect for you!
You will learn key sewing techniques, simple garment construction skills and how to work with easy fabrics.
This is a very practical course. By the end, you will have completed a simple garment, a paper pattern and embedded it onto a fabric of your choice. This should give you the confidence to start basic machine sewing independently.
It’s a really brilliant course and the college offers everything that you need. There’s always support on hand if you need it.”
You will need a basic sewing kit consisting of: fabric scissors, small scissors, pins, thread, needles, tape measure and un-picker.
You will be provided with 1.5 meters of Calico. This is a plain-woven textile made from unbleached and often not fully processed cotton. The cost is included in your fee.
You will need to purchase 2 m of your own woven fabric and a pattern for this course.
