Intro to Sewing



POSTPONED – new date tbc
Saturday 17th September 11am-5pm
Moulin Hall, Pitlochry. PH16 5EW

Want to try your hand at sewing or get back into it after a long break?
Dust off that sewing machine and come along to this sewing day.
You will learn how to thread the machine, wind a bobbin, change a needle, sew simple seams and use the different settings / feet on your machine.  You will sew a sampler to see what your machine is really capable of and then you can choose from a selection of little projects to make using salvaged/scrap fabrics such as a spinner/hanging, a lavender filled keyring, button bracelets or a lined zip-up purse to take away at the end of the day.  Suitable for all levels of sewers.

Maximum 6 people – plenty of room in a roomy village hall.

Date: Saturday 17th September
Time: 11.00 – 5.00pm
Venue: The Moulin Hall, behind the Moulin Kirk, Kirkmichael Road, Pitlochry. PH16 5EW
Access: All on ground floor, free parking directly outside
Lunch: Bring a pack lunch.  There will be tea, coffee and biscuits available all day.

No materials needed (unless you think you have a fabric you might like to incorporate into your design) but a sewing kit (with sharp scissors) and your own sewing machine if you have one – there’s nothing like having the opportunity to use your very own machine.  Ruth can give you advice on how to clean it and keep it in tip top condition too – as she has a certificate in repairing and servicing sewing machines.  If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can rent one for the day for £10 fee.  See options in booking.

In the unlikely event that a workshop is cancelled, Ruth will offer you the choice to transfer your space to the next available workshop, a workshop of your choosing, or offer you a full refund. You will be informed of cancellations at least three days before the event.
