Have you ever wanted to learn how to sew your own envelope cushions? This wonderful workshop will take you right through the basics.

Learn the basics of operating a sewing machine in this 3 hour introductory workshop.  Leave the workshop having sewn a custom envelope cushion cover!

Skill Level: Beginner 

Skill requirements:

There are no prerequisites for this class; no sewing experience is necessary. These classes are for brand new sewers who have no sewing machine experience or for those who have not sewn in a long time.

Must be aged 16+.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Basic sewing vocabulary
  • Basic fabric knowledge
  • Helpful tools you’ll need to sew at home
  • How to cut straight lines
  • Sewing machine parts and functions
  • How to wind a bobbin and thread the machine
  • How to sew in a straight line and pivot around corners
  • How to sew in reverse
  • Sewing seams
  • Sewing finishing hems

Materials Needed: You will need to purchase or bring to class .75m of either quilting cotton, light-medium weight canvas or medium-light weight upholstery fabric, and thread to match your fabric. (We recommend not using black on black, if you learning to sew for the first time - hard to see where you are sewing)

We offer a 20% student discount on all your supplies for this workshop! You will be sent a code to use online once you've registered for your class.

Equipment requirements: We highly encourage you to bring your own sewing machine, however if you don't own a machine, one will be provided for you. If you’d like to bring your home machine, please remember to bring the manual (and foot pedal/power cord) and arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time.

Group size: We like to keep our workshops cozy and fun, so attendance is limited to 6 guests.
