With Jacqueline Engel
Get to know and love your sewing machine £20
Our aim is that by the end of the day you will feel comfortable threading a sewing machine, sewing the basic stitches, trouble-shooting simple problems, and confident to play with more interesting stitches.
Sewing Machine: How a sewing machine works, threading the machine & winding the bobbin, adjusting the tension, stitch length/stitch width.
Sewing: Straight lines/corners, curves, zigzag stitch, decorative stitches.
Embrace your Overlocker £20
Please bring your overlocker, instruction booklet and a basic sewing kit. Jacky will demystify your overlocker and make sure you learn the range of amazing things you can do with it. Please tell us the make of your overlocker when you book, and inform us if you have your instruction book or not.
Customise and upcycle your clothes
Bring your clothes and Jacky will guide you through a range of very creative options to turn your own old things into unique and very special garments. Please bring a sewing kit and sewing machine if you have one, along with items you want to upcycle.
Jacky got her first sewing machine at the age of 13 and it's still going strong. With years of experience and experimentation (and many flops along with the successes), and formal tailoring training under her belt, Jacky has a passion for letting you work and learn at your own pace. Her hope is that you will grow in confidence to play with your machinery and materials so that you can
explore your own creativity through sewing.
