This course will suit all abilities. This is a fun and gently paced course if you haven’t sewn for some time or regularly sew with your machine. Any sewing machine with a handful of stitches will work, and using the thread you already have is perfect. You will get to know the stitches on your machine and how they respond to different threads. With step-by-step demonstrations and lots of encouragement, Gill will show you how to create this beautiful cushion whilst you get to know what you can do with your machine.
