learn to love your sewing machine

Learn to Love Your Sewing Machine:
Make Your Own Cushion
Littleworth Hall, Amberley
10 March 2011, 10 - 4

If you are a little uncertain about how to use your sewing machine this is the workshop for you. We will teach you how to love your sewing machine, building your confidence and showing you tricks of the trade to help you with any sewing project. We'll spend the morning looking at techniques and after a yummy lunch you can put your new skills to the test when you design and create your own cushion cover. This workshop will cover the following:
  • understanding your sewing machine
  • button holes
  • zips
  • piping
  • applique
  • tips & tricks
The day costs £50 including lunch, coffee, tea, cakes and all materials. At the end of the day you will go home with a techniques file and a full set of instructions for completing or recreating your piece.

  1. I'd love to join you, but the commute would be a little difficult as I live in Tokyo, Japan! Just flicking through my blog list and came across yours and it reminded me of the quilt show here recently and a beautiful UK themed quilt I hope that you can pick up the image). One day, when my husband and I return to the UK The Cotswolds is our destination, so envious!!!!!
