Looking to try your hand at sewing or get back into it after a long break? Dust off that sewing machine(if you have one it lives in the attic right?! Poor thing!) and come along to one of our classes!
Suitable for absolute-never-seen-a-sewing-machine-before-beginners and returning sew-ers alike our Beginners Sewing Course is the perfect way to get crafty! We focus on building confidence, teaching you useful, transferable skills all in a super friendly and sociable environment. Time to FORGET that terrifying Home Economics Class from back in the day- we are the opposite! You'll learn all about threading the machine then make lots of little projects such as a tote bag, bunting, zipped and lined make up bag, a piped cushion AND there is time at the end for you to start your own project with our help.
No need to bring or even own a sewing machine as we have everything you need in the studio!
Our courses are held in our bright & creative sewing studios in Glasgow West, Dundee and Chorley and OBVIOUSLY include free tea/coffee/biscuits.
We have several different types of the same course these are:
2 Day Class - Held at the weekend over 2 consecutive Saturdays or Sundays 10am - 5pm

Top 3 Beginner’s Sewing Class FAQs
Q. I can’t even sew a button on, will I be able to manage on the beginners sewing class?
A. ABSOLUTELY! We assume you’ve never even seen a sewing machine before so if you’ve ACTUALLY never seen a sewing machine before that’s absolutely fine! There is no pressure to be the most amazing sew-er, we focus on the social side and the de-stressing side of sewing too so as long as you are enjoying yourself, you’re doing it right!
Q. I’m really interested in making clothes for myself, do I have to do the beginner’s sewing class first?
A. If you have no previous sewing experience then yes. This is because our beginner’s sewing class is the only one that shows you how to thread the machine and all the sewing basics like pinning techniques, what seam allowances are, how to manoeuvre the machine etc. Every skill you learn in the beginner sewing class is transferable and totally necessary for your dressmaking journey so it’s not a waste of your time!
Q. I used to sew years ago but I haven’t in a while and I would like to get back into it, should I do the beginners sewing class?
A. It’s totally up to you! We often get people on the beginner’s sewing class who used to sew and they want to come along and jog their memory. If you come on the class and you end up quicker than everyone else it just means you can make multiple make up bags etc! Another option however is booking in for a private session with one of our tutors to get your confidence back up and then you would be able to book onto other classes with your sewing confidence back on track!
