Sewing Machines for Beginners

About this Workshop:
Learn the basics such as getting thread on the bobbin, loading the bobbin, threading the machine and straight and zig-zag stitches. After getting to know your machine you will be able to make a cushion cover with an envelope back (which has no zips and no buttons) to take home and show all your friends. Also covered in the workshop are techniques to stop your stitches unravelling, how to stop your fabric fraying, as well as creating a 1.5cm seam and sewing on trimmings.

This is an ideal workshop if you are thinking about buying a machine or already have a machine and are not sure how to use it. If you are starting from scratch or last used a machine at school then this is the workshop for you.

There are six Running With Scissors machines available to use at the workshop, however you can bring your own if you wish. Please note that if you bring your own machine it will be up to you to make sure that it is in good working order and is safe to use. Running with Scissors cannot take responsibility for use of machines other than our own.

This workshop is also available as private tuition, in your own home (in Sheffield). Please see our private tuition page for more details.
