Sewing Machine 101 – UsefulBox

Let’s get the kids sewing and crafting!
Choose from block printing, weaving, sewing machine 101, sewing bum bags and teen sewing days!
These workshops really cater for all abilities from beginners to those that have sewn before. To those that would prefer to craft making their own printed canvas bag or weaving a wallhanging!
Our teen sewing classes are geared to get them sewing their first garments!
We are COVID Safe and have current WWCC.


In this quick start lesson, I will show your child how to thread a sewing machine, practise stitches and make a quick project, a Pencil Wrap.

Firstly, we take around 1hour to learn how the machine works, thread it and practice stitching. We then take these new skills to begin making up a project. The skills in this lesson include making seams, zig zag edging and top stitching.

Once armed with this new found confidence and skills, your child will be able to tackle lots of fun projects at home.
