New course dates now available for September and October 2020!
We are excited to introduce to you our brand new Learn to Sew a Face Mask class!
We thought seeing as though it’s become a necessity in these uncertain times, why not learn to make your very own face mask?
On top of that, 20% of all sales from this course will be donated to our chosen charity Camden Carers. A charity very close to our hearts ♥️
You will benefit from this class if you have previously taken our Learn to Use a Sewing Machine workshop or, our Ultimate Beginners Intro to Sewing (Gifts & Accessories) Course and you’d like a refresher. It’s also just great if you are keen to learn to make your own face mask 🙂
In this workshop you will get an introduction to setting up the machine and understanding what the sewing machine has to offer, followed by preparing, cutting and then sewing up your very own face mask with elastic loops.
What’s there not to like??? And it gets even better! All materials, a section of lovely plain and printed cottons to choose from are included free of cost, you get to keep the pattern so you can make more masks at home, and you will receive step-by-step Pdf instructions too!
Just bring yourself along and be prepared to have a lovely time! Please note that this session does not allow for time to set up and go through student’s own machines. When joining this class you will have to use our machines. The basic principles to set up and use a sewing machine are the same for all models and any differences can be easily worked out by going through your own machine’s manual once you have practiced on ours.
What you will learn:
- How to set up and thread a machine and how to wind a bobbin
- How to set the correct tension
- How to troubleshoot common problems
- How to cut and pin fabric using a simple pattern
- How to sew perfectly straight seams and a curved seam too!
- How to handle elastic
- How to sew corners
- Thursday 24th September 2020, 6:30pm-9:30pm
- Friday 16th October 2020, 2:30pm-5:30pm
The class will start promptly at the scheduled time. Please arrive five minutes early to allow time to settle.
