“ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS”

 

If you have always wanted to “sew something” but don’t know where to begin or don’t have a sewing machine – these classes are for you!   If you don't have a sewing machine, don't worry - its FREE to use one of ours for the day.

 Also a great class to get you going if you have a sewing machine but it is still in its box!!!  Bring yours along and we'll get you on your way.

 We offer Absolute Beginners classes for dressmaking and craft/general sewing. 

 

 ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS  :  MACHINE BASICS & MAKE A CUSHION with Elaine

~ SATURDAY 23RD APRIL 2022 : 10.00am-3.00pm  ~

£50.00 (All materials included with your choice of fabrics from the shop ~ cushion inner not included)



Get to grips with your sewing machine.  In this class you will learn the basics of your machine and then make yourself a fabulous cushion including inserting a hidden zipper.  If you don't have a sewing machine but have always wanted to learn to sew, you can borrow one of our machines for the class at no extra cost. 

 

 

KIMBERBELL EVENTS & PROGRAMS


 

If you would like to explore what machine embroidery is all about you are welcome to book on one of these events and use one of our machines ~ SPARK EVENTS are particularly geared towards beginners.  

Alternatively, take a look out Kimberbell's new programme for 2022 "Digital Dealer Exclusives".  These are smaller projects (bite-sized sessions) where you can come in to the shop and make the monthly project on one of our machines.  If you would like to find out more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
