LIVING SKILLS WORKSHOP - How to use a sewing machine

Ever wanted to make or mend your own clothes, or been totally in awe of someone who is wearing one of their own creations?

Well, here's a great opportunity to learn the basics on a sewing machine.

A trained dress maker will be leading the workshop and will be showing people how to follow a pattern, use a sewing machine and an over-locker.  We will be sewing an apron.  People can bring their own sewing machine if they wish, but there will be 2 sewing machines on hand.

If anyone has started a project at home and needs a bit of advice or a helping hand, feel free to bring your project, or at least your question along.

For those who would like to make their own apron, you will need to bring 1.5 metres of material, cotton to match and bias tape 1.3cm wide. Otherwise, the workshop will be a demonstration.

Next month's Living Skills workshop will be another sewing skill which involves incorporating padding into an object. The project for next month is a homemade laptop (or iPad) bag.

This workshop is open to PSN members only, and members can sign up for this event using the REGISTER button on the left of the screen and providing your login details (email address and password).  If you are not a PSN member and would like to take part in this workshop, you can join PSN here 

Numbers are strictly limited to 4 participants, so you will need to get in quick to save your place for this workshop.
