Beginners Sewing Course XL | Event in Edinburgh | AllEvents.in Beginners Sewing Course XL

A comprehensive introduction to sewing. Learn to use a sewing machine and gain some foundation sewing skills. How to sew seams and take up hems plus make 3 easy sewing projects. This extended version of the original Beginners sewing course runs over 6 weeks (2 hours per week) and gives you 2 more lovely sewing projects for extra practice.


Course description

The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course. It is a 6-week evening course so there's two extra projects to make. This extra sewing practice makes a huge difference to your sewing skill and confidence.


It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You'll learn how to understand sewing machines get experience of using different stitch types learning about stitch lengths widths and tensions. I'll explain what the different presser feet are for and you'll learn how to measure and cut fabric.

I've been sewing since I was a child and that's a lot of years experience. During that time I've made every mistake in the book and learnt how to avoid them. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro as I share my expert tips. I wish I'd known all this stuff when I started to sew.

Artisan Stitch won a Certificate of Excellence in January 2019 and is rated 'Best sewing classes in Edinburgh'.

Who is this aimed at?

Absolute Beginners (if you've never used a sewing machine before)


Novice sewists (if you've recently learned and would like to know a bit more)
