COMPLETE BEGINNER

A six-week course

 

Always wanted to get behind the machine, but scared to take the plunge?

Or maybe you haven’t sewn since school and need a push to get going?

In these courses I start at the very beginning and walk you through the basics to give you the confidence you need to continue your sewing journey.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the beginners course with Camille. I had a machine and was slightly scared to use it. I now feel so much more confident and am really enjoying all the new projects I have learnt. Really looking forward to doing an improver course and hopefully a dressmaking course "

Sarah Jones, November 2018
