Learn to Sew
(Introduction to sewing with a machine)
This class is aimed at people who have never used a sewing machine before.
In this class you will learn to use a sewing machine for simple projects – we will cover threading the machine, sewing seams, finishing edges, and we will make a simple re-usable shopper bag as a first project. We will provide the fabric and thread – there will be a choice of a few different designs / colours. We have 3 sewing machines available at the craft room, but if you have a machine at home and you want to learn how to use your particular machine then feel free to bring it along with you (and the instructions if you have them!)
Cost: 70 CHF
Materials: all materials are provided
Our March class is now full, still spaces in April or May.
At these sewing project sessions you can bring your project and we will help you from beginning to end in creating your item. This could be a skirt, a top, a cushion or whatever other item you wish to sew.
You will need to bring:
- a pattern*
- any other items needed to complete the project (buttons, zips, elastic etc.)
- a box of pins
All other items can be borrowed from the craft room – but if you have your own sewing box with dressmaking shears, tape measure, stitch rippers and the like then please bring it.
*for easy household projects such as cushions, patterns are not necessary, but for any wearable items or bags, please bring a pattern. If you need help with where to find a pattern or fabric, just message us here.
Please note: the Craft Room table is not big enough for several students to cut large fabric pieces at the same time – you can come in a bit before the class time to do the cutting part alone, or we can help you so you can do it at home. Please drop us a message if you need to do some cutting (small things will be fine).
Cost: 42 CHF per class
Materials: please bring all items for your project (see class details)
To register for several sessions please add each date individually to the shopping cart by selecting a date and clicking the register now button, then checkout after you’ve added all the dates.
