Workshop.: Beginners Sewing Class - Make a Tote Bag

Dates and times

23 Aug 2020

Show Map


24 Otley Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS6 2AD

For complete beginners, this class is perfect for anyone new to sewing or anyone wanting to learn a new skill. You'll learn everything you need to use a sewing machine and start stitching!

We’ll start by taking you through the very basics, from how to thread up your machine to setting your stitch length and correcting your tension. You’ll practice these and slowly build up your skills. At the end of the class you’ll have made a simple tote bag and have the confidence you need to start your next sewing project. 

Small class sizes of up to 4 people ensure you get maximum guidance and give you everything you need to to start sewing solo.

Classes are two hours long and all materials and equipment is provided.
