PROJECTS MADE AND SKILLS COVERED

Below, you will find a list of skills that your child will be taught during our online lessons. They do not need to have any prior knowledge to join - if anything, it's better if they don't!

 

Although it is a beginner's group, I do provide projects that progress their skills in a structured and considered way. I aim to keep them motivated through creating projects that extend their learning - leaving the simpler projects for them to try independently themselves when they have time.

BEGINNER GROUP: HALF TERM ONE

Machine Skills

Wind a bobbin, thread a sewing machine and practise control skills.

Pattern-Making Skills

Measure out, make and label pattern pieces.

Padded Folder Cover

Apply fusible fleece, topstitch and adding pockets.

BEGINNER GROUP: HALF TERM TWO
