On Thursday 15th October 2015, we ran Learn to love your sewing machine part 1, which is a sewing a class for anyone who wants to learn the basics of using their sewing machine. This class is very popular and its a sewing class that we have been running for a couple of years. This class is about people getting to know their sewing machines and what their machines are capable of so the class is taught on each individuals personal machines.
The first thing you will learn is how to thread your sewing machine, both the main thread at the top and the bobbin that goes under, the tutor will go round to everyone and see everyone machine, tailoring what she teaches to everyone’s needs. We keep our classes small, with a maximum of only 6 people in each class, this is so everyone get the one to one that they need at this early stage of sewing.
Most of the pupils we had on this class were all new to sewing although this isn’t always the case in the past we have had sewing that really want to get back to sewing after years and want to refresh their skills or sewers that have invested in a new machine. The class also went over how to fill the bobbin up, and what the different feet on the machine are for and how to change them, all the basic things that you need to know and how to do these things correctly.
Everyone who went on this class on Thursday 15th we all so pleased with what they had learnt and were looking forward to part 2 the following week. The following class will go into more depth on what was already learnt, with pupils learning how to use their zipper foot and putting in a basic zip and doing some basic piping with their piping foot.
We run a range of sewing classes at Livingstone Textiles all throughout the year, if you would like more information or would like to book on to one of our classes please contact us and we will be happy to help.
