Learn To Sew
From Beginners To Advanced
"You have had your sewing machine sat collecting dust in the cupboard, too afraid to get it out and make something?
Or maybe your creative genius is just waiting to flourish but needs some direction and a helping hand?
With several years of soft furnishing experience and an NVQ level 2 & 3 in soft furnishings, I can help support and develop these worth while skills.
You gain so much more satisfaction making your own home furnishing. From cushions to duvets and curtains to tie backs.
How much will it cost?
I charge a flat rate of £35 per hour if you use your own machine or £40 per hour if you use mine. This includes a full hours tuition on your chosen project.
Set up will take 5-10 minutes prior to the lesson commencing and this is included in the hours price so you do not lose any time.
What will I need?
A sewing machine would be beneficial so that you can practice after your lessons, however I can supply a machine for lesson purpose.
You will need your chosen fabric to complete your product. If your not sure about quantity needed then please get in touch and I will let you know.
A basic sewing kit would be advantageous as a lot of soft furnishing projects require some hand stitching. And finally your choice of cottons to use with your machine. I highly recommend using Gutterman thread found in all haberdasheries as this thread tends not to break under machine pressure.
How long will it take?
This is a difficult one. How long is a piece of thread? It will be dependant on the project you carry out and any embellishments you would like to learn along the way. If you wish to discuss your requirements I will be able to give you a better time frame for completion.
Are there any extra charges?
I request that you supply your own fabric, braids, tassels and anything else that you wish to include in your project.
I can supply, curtain lining, interlining, fusible buckram and other soft furnishings accessories at a small cost.
Travel within 12miles of me (LE67 4QU) is not charged, however further afield will incur a travel charge of 80p per mile.
