Here we have the first ‘absolute beginners’ sewing class at The Pineapple Palace Lodge in Thatcham, Berkshire.
We set about with a quick lesson on how to wind a bobbin, thread our machine and check tension. We then practiced some straight lines, turning corners and following a curve.
We then chose the fabric, made our inner pillows, which were filled with ½ volume lavender (from Yorkshire Lavender Ltd) and ½ volume Mouldmaster toy filling.
“Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon last Friday at the sewing workshop.
Although I didn’t manage to get my machine out over the weekend I do feel so much more confident about what to do! Considering I’ve had the machine for 2 years and been too afraid to use it I consider Friday a great success.
My daughters were so impressed with the lavender pillow.
I cannot fault the course or tuition. It was very friendly & relaxed, and I would love to join you again on a future course.
