Intro to Sewing Class

Intro to Sewing: Beginners Sewing Classes in London with Sew Over It

Our best selling course! Since opening we have taught over 3000 beginners how to sew. We love nothing more than introducing people to the wonderful world of sewing!

Our Intro to Sewing course is for absolute beginners! Even if you have never seen a sewing machine before, this course will give you the confidence to work on a whole variety of sewing projects. We will start from scratch, showing you how to thread the sewing machine, before building your skills with our four tailor-made projects. Here is how Intro to Sewing is broken down:

Session 1: Make a cushion cover! We start of gently by getting you familiar with the sewing machine. Learn how to thread your machine and sew in a straight line, before making a cushion cover. Decorate your cushion with self-covered buttons.

Session 2: Make a tote bag! Take your skills further and make a tote bag, learning how to finish the seams with zig zag stitch to stop them from fraying.

Session 3: Make a zipped bag! Conquer zips and make a little lined bag, perfect as a make-up bag or pencil case. You will learn both hand sewing and machine skills on this project.

Session 4: Alterations! Learn valuable skills to help you alter your clothes, from hand hemming to repairing, taking in side seams and customising clothes.

Included in the price of the course:

Choice of a wide selection of fabrics for all three projects, a cushion pad for your cushion, a guide to threading a sewing machine and as much tea and cake as you can eat!

NEW VIDEOS! We now offer video support for Intro to Sewing! We know it can be tricky to remember everything you learn in the class, so to help you we’ve made a series of video tutorials to refresh your memory. Once the course is complete, we will email you a link to a series of downloadable tutorials made by Lisa.  And there are extras projects on there too! Click here for a preview!
