Sewing for Beginners to Intermediate


Many people who haven’t used their sewing machine for a while will have difficulty in getting it running again. If you have never used a sewing machine and wanting to buy one. Come along and use the college machines. This is a good way to figure out what you need it for and get advice before purchasing one. Confidence will be achieved with threading and basic maintenance advice. For intermediate sewers it is a great atmosphere to gain ideas from others and advance your creative skills. It is also inspiring to be among a group of like minded individuals and expand your knowledge.
