Have you got a bit rusty and lost your sewing confidence? Then kick off the year with this refresher sewing class to get you started again.
If you’ve lost confidence using a sewing machine, and have forgotten how to wind bobbins and thread up, then we’ll start from the beginning. I’ll take you through some common sewing tasks that you’ll need if you’d like to start dressmaking again. Plus there’s plenty of my tips to help you achieve a professional finish to your sewing projects
