The Saturday Project : Get to know your machine

  • Colour and Cloth 140 Roslyn Street Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT6 8JL United Kingdom (map)

These are 4 hour project based workshops on a Saturday afternoon, Each week a different project is embraced. The workshops are priced individually.



Did you join the queue and get a shiny new Singer sewing machine and are itching to find out what its 32 different stitches can do? You could read the manual of course, but what fun would that be! This afternoon class will have you finding your feet, selecting your stitches and whizzing your way around your own machine in no time! We will cover troubleshooting, the best needles to use for the job in hand, the best thread choices for the fabric. Please bring your own LIDL machine in store August 2016 , foot pedal, instructions and accessories to the class.  A notepad, pencil and a camera will also be useful.

Christine teaches with patience, enthusiasm, encouragement and experience at every step. Our N.I Sewing Bee Angeline Murphy was once one of her dressmaking students. She has over 25 years experience in fashion, costume, and self employment in Northern Ireland.  Her mum taught her to sew when she was 6. 

Class sizes are limited to 5 people so that learning is focused and fun.
