Briefly about the course

The beginner sewing course “Sewing from A to Z”was designed for people who either know nothing or little about sewing. 

During this course you will learn to use all of the functions of domestic sewing machines. You’ll also learn how to copy patterns and understand pattern symbols. We’ll show you how to choose the best size for you and make changes to the pattern according to your figure. We’ll discuss how to choose the best fabric for your project. We’ll also give you many useful sewing tips. This theoretical knowledge will be used to make a skirt, blouse, dress and pants.

Apart from learning to sew and copy patterns the participants will be offered advice about choosing the best machine for their own domestic sewing studio. A detailed schedule of the course is available below.
