Workshop, Sewing Machine Basics, 3-4 Hour hands on learning in my studio
I love sewing. I’ve been sewing for decades but the only sewing course I ever took was Home Economics back in grade school.
Fast forward a few years and I have my own textile studio where I get to make the loviest things every day.
I know so many of you would love to learn how to sew. In 2020 I just started hosting in-studio sewing lessons. The one-on-one instructions were so fun to host. I love being able to teach again and see my clients beam with their sewing successes. Sadly, due to the shut-downs I had to stop offering in-person sewing lessons.
I’m so happy to say that now they’re back! Yay!
Location: This introduction to your sewing machine course is an in-person sewing instruction course that is hosted in my studio, which is on the second floor of my little log cabin, located in Douro-Dummer Ontario. I live in a rural area in cottage country surrounded by trees. I have ample parking and a maintained road to my little cabin in the woods, so it’s quite easy to get to.
Duration: Each course is over one day from 19am-12 (ish) or from 1-4pm (ish) it always takes a bit longer than three hours so I add grace time at the end of each session
When: The day for this instruction is determined by us in a conversation after your purchase. I try as much as possible to be flexible to off the time of day and day of the week that best suits your schedule
Equipment: The course consists of learning the basics of threading and sewing with a domestic sewing machine. I use an electronic Janome C30 as my teaching machine. But I have a Pfaff manual sewing machine for those who prefer learning on a Manual sewing machine
You can bring your own sewing machine to learn on if you have already purchase one and know that it’s in good running condition.
What’s Included: Your sewing basics instruction day includes the small learning project fabrics that you worked on for the day. In this introductory you normally finish a pillow cover but this project can be determined by what you want to learn to make.
How does it work: you purchase your sewing instruction hours and then send me an email with your scheduling request through my shop email If you don’t use email, once your purchase is completed I send an introductory message with my contact info including my phone and social media details
