Adult Sewing Classes

That's two official Sewing Machine Basic classes I have done now. I think they went very well and it is great to see the ladies confidence increase and think about going off on their own to make all types of goodies. Maybe they will come back for some further lessons too. Here are a couple of pictures.


In the beginners class they learn how to use the sewing machine and then practise what they have learnt by making a Tote bag with bow and a matching zipped pouch. Carol said she was amazed at how much she learnt in such a short space of time.


Berni chose a sophisticated brown with soft coloured spot, Basic Grey by Moda fabric with contrastic flowers for the bow.

The bags look lovely Mandy, wish I lived nearer as I'd really love to learn to sew properly, my projects are never as neat as I'd wish. Glad your classes are going well :) xxx
