Basic Sewing Skills

During this new 6-week evening class at R:evolve Recycle Rutherglen you'll learn all the basics you need to get sewing!

Basic Sewing Skills

About Basic Sewing Skills

Our expert tutor will show you how to set up a sewing machine, then you’ll learn some basic stitches, how to hem an item, and how to fit a zip, as well as some hand sewing and appliqué.

At the end of the course you’ll leave with your own unique handmade sewing kit including a pincushion, needle case, and sewing bag.

The classes are designed for complete beginners so whether you’ve never picked up a needle and thread in your life, or whether you just need a reminder of how things work, this will be the perfect starting point. There are only 5 spaces available for this class so you’ll receive plenty of individual support to get you sewing in no time!

Only £95 for the full course including tuition, use of one of our sewing machines, and all materials (not to mention tea, coffee, and biscuits!).

The course will run from 6pm – 8pm every Wednesday for 6 weeks starting on the 20th February (last class will take place on Wednesday 27th March).

The Basic Sewing Skills course takes place in our R:evolve Boutique, 71 Main Street, Rutherglen, G73 2JQ

Book your place via EventBrite, sign up in store, email victoria@leap-project.co.uk, phone 0141 641 5169 or contact us on social media @revolverecycle to book.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Basic Sewing Skills are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
