RETWEED ‘Spring collection’ of craft, sewing and upcycling workshops. 

Stop Being Scared of Your Sewing Machine

This workshop takes the mystery out of the sewing machine, holding first-time sewers by the hand and showing the easiest ways to get the most from their machine.

Become Part of Growing “Make Your Own” Culture

With the resurrection of ‘make do and mend’ culture, interest in learning how to master a sewing machine has soared. Although 100s more sewing machines are sold each week – a lot of them are gathering dust as folk seem to be terrified of the technology!! In this workshop, Jacqueline Thompson ReTweed’s Master Trainer will provide a hands-on guide for beginners.

What Will You Learn on the Day

This workshop starts with an essential overview of the sewing machine, learning how to thread it and wind bobbins, understanding tension and which thread, which needles and which feet to choose along with troubleshooting common problems. There’s some guidance on the basic sewing kit you should have, plus advice on which fabrics to choose and basics of cutting out. The workshop includes making a tri-colour cushion cover and take-home handouts. Participants in this workshop are free to bring along their own sewing machines if they prefer – please let us know in advance if you’d like to do.

Workshop Cost: £35 (including light lunch)
