Sew Personal tutorials

Sew personal tutorials are a great option for newly qualified fashion graduate, postgraduate student or textiles teacher. We customise the training programme to your training needs with particular emphasis on practical skills, complementing the theoretical knowledge and learning you already have.

Any one of our short courses is suitable for a ‘Sew Personal’ session, however ‘sewing machine skills’ and ‘overlocking for the terrified’ are our most popular requests!

A personal tutorial in sewing machine skills will debunk the technology and all those extra bits that came with the machine but you’ve never dared to use!

Sew the perfect buttonhole

You’ll learn about needles and threads, threading, stitch length, sewing with basic and decorative stitches and the art of tension control. By the end of the session, you’ll have mastered machining in straight lines and in curves and will be able to sew a perfect machine buttonhole!

Overlocking for the terrified!

‘Overlocking for the terrified’ unravels the mysteries of these often daunting machines. After just one session, you’ll be setting the machine up like a professional! We’ll cover threading, tension control and setting stitch length, before moving on to different styles of overlocking and managing stretch and delicate fabrics.
