Sunderland Sewing Bee with the So Sew Clever Craft School


Would you like to sew, but just don’t know where to start?

Let me show you. Let me guide you, from the beginning, and build your confidence in this thrifty craft.

During the day, you will learn the basics. Starting at the beginning and learn how to wind on a bobbin, thread the sewing machine ready for use. You will learn how to sew in straight lines, change the stitches on the machine and turn corners. Sewing seams.

Learn how to lay out a simple pattern, pin and cut out fabric. You will create an envelope cushion cover, to take away with you, as well as take away your own pattern for you to continue making a few more at home using the techniques you have learned.
