Sewing Machine Skills, Two-Day Workshop – Saturday 31st October & 7th November 2020
This is a two day workshop running from 12:00 – 3:00pm on Saturday 31st October & 7th November 2020. When booking please ensure you are available to attend both days.
This Sewing Machine Skills workshop is designed to teach you valuable skills and give you an extensive understanding of the different techniques available on modern machines.
The first part of this 2-part workshop will introduce you to a sewing machine and its various parts, going over what each of these do, and how it all works. We will show you how to thread your machine, how to fill your bobbin, change a needle, and there will be time for sewing practice and an opportunity to make a simple item with basic seams.
Following on from day one, we will build on your knowledge from the first class, looking at the different types of seams and finishing techniques, including how to insert a zip, make buttonholes and how to maintain your sewing machine and prevent costly service charges. There will also be an opportunity to make a simple item to take home with you using your new found skills!
This course is suitable for both complete beginners and for those with experience who’d like a refresher course or who are using a new, unfamiliar machine.
If you own a sewing machine then you are welcome to bring this along and work with this during the workshop, but we ask that you let us know prior to the workshop so that we can prepare for this. Otherwise we provide all sewing machines, equipment, tools, and materials.
This workshop will be taking place at Granton Hub, Madelvic House, Granton Park Avenue, Edinburgh EH5 1HS. Madelvic House is just off the cycle path, has a dedicated car park and is a 2 minute walk from the number 19, 16 and 200 bus stop. We will be using their large studio space which will allow for social distancing and have implemented all health and safety measures to ensure your safety and comfort. More details of these measures will be emailed out to confirmed attendees the week before the workshop start date.
