Who is it for?

This course is for adults aged 19+ who want to learn how to use a sewing machine or refresh their sewing machine knowledge.

You will learn how to use your sewing machine by applying correct techniques, troubleshoot common problems and make informed needle and thread choices to achieve great results.

Content includes:

  • threading your sewing machine correctly
  • matching the correct needle, thread and stitch size/type to fabric
  • basic servicing of your machine
  • stitches for overcasting, blind hemming, buttonholes, and free motion sewing and zips
