Classes

Single session

I travel to your London home* to teach you the confidence to use your sewing machine in a fun and informal way.

You will need access to your own sewing machine.

You will learn the following:

  • Threading your machine with confidence.
  • Sewing in a straight line using various stitches.
  • Fabric properties appropriate to the task.
  • Short cuts to sewing.
  • Troubleshooting common machine 'issues'.
  • how to make a tote bag/cushion cover

Dispel any worries you have about using a sewing machine. Once you start, you won't want to stop!

If you have a sewing experience and want to learn something more specific such as how to read a pattern or how to insert a zip, etc: I can help you with that too. I can 'tailor' (sorry) your class to your sewing needs. Just let me know when we connect.

Who am I? My name is Karen Arthur. I am a fashion designer and sewing tutor with @ReddskinUK have over 40 years sewing experience and almost 30 years teaching children and adults. I have experience running my own workshops in Galleries and schools and have taught regularly at the Knitting and Stitching Show, the largest craft exhibition in Europe.

You can find me on my website www.reddskin.co.uk or pop over to Facebook @ReddskinUK, Instagram @TheKarenArthur to find out my latest shenanigans.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Karen was amazing, a true creative (but also very practical) who put me at ease straight away. She was able to tailor (no pun intended) the two lessons perfectly.. giving me the confidence to plan and do many more projects with my sewing machine. She is clearly an experienced teacher who can help with fashion/home furnisihings/accessories... or anything you could think of. The time flew by and we had a lot of fun. I would highly recommend. Thank you Karen!

Notes

We will discuss these beforehand as some aren't essential...but basically you will need: - A working sewing machine. -spare machine needles. - A table (dining table is fine) to cut fabric on. - 1 metre of medium weight, non -stretchy fabric. Cotton is fine. - matching or contrast thread. - iron - ironing board. - dressmaking pins* - fabric scissors* - thread scissors.* - tape measure* * I am happy to bring my own to use but if you wish to continue with further projects its always best to have these at your disposal. Pubic transport travel expenses outside zone 3 are a small extra cost.

Age Requirement

10

All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
