complete beginner level classes

Complete Beginner - you're brand new to sewing, never sat at a sewing machine, never pinned & cut fabric. Or perhaps you sewed in school & want to re-learn/refresh the machine sewing basics from the beginning

improving beginner classes

Improver - for improving beginners: you have used & threaded up a sewing machine before, sewn seams following a seam allowance, made a small item or two - like a bag, purse, apron or cushion. You may need a reminder on some things as you're still fairly new to sewing


Intermediate - you've completed sewing at least two items of clothing and have sewn at least one zip. You understand how to lay a pattern on the straight grain of the fabric, mark notches and dots, and can pin and cut out fairly confidently. You understand how to thread up and sew with a machine and how to sew to a set seam seam allowance. You've inserted a zip at least once and sewn a buttonhole or two

Experienced - you've made five or more items of clothing using a sewing machine, including set in sleeves & are fairly confident cutting out and sewing unsupervised but will need some pointers and guidance on some things. You may need help learning to tissue-fit patterns to get a custom fit


Not sure? Not sewn for many years, but used to sew quite a bit? Perhaps you're a self taught sewer & not sure if you're doing it correctly? Why not book on to one or more of our all-level Stitch!
