Do you have a budding young sewist? Does your child have a sewing machine and would love to learn how to make on it? Get them making and practising with my Mini Machinist sessions!

This half term, encourage some interior styling as they learn how to create a cushion (34x24cm) for their bedroom!

How to measure up
How to make a seam
How to hand stitch

Straight stitching
Fabric pressing (using an iron)...
Clipping seams and corners
Ladder stitching

Sewing machines will be provided, but if they have one of their own, they can bring it along and the session will give them the confidence to carry on creating at home.
Please bring some cotton fabric in a chosen colour and pattern — 1 fat quarter (50x56cm approx.) will be enough to make the cushion — I will bring a variety of fabrics to choose from if preferred on the day, at an additional cost. Everything else- other materials, and tools, will be provided!

This session is suitable for children 10+ or 8+ with prior sewing machine experience. Places are extremely limited to provide the attention required to each participant, and ensure their safety.
Please note- a risk assessment can be provided on request due to the equipment we will be working with.

£16 per child
This includes full tuition, all other materials, use of sewing machines and full instructions to keep. Plus refreshments throughout the afternoon!

A Mini Machinist kit, which includes:
a pair of child friendly scissors
a tape measure
a wheel of pretty pins
a seam ripper/quick unpick
for a special price of £4.50 (save 20% on the usual individual prices) will also be available on the day for your child to carry on making at home!
