Dates for beginners Sew Inn classes @ Tessuti Surry Hills, Sydney
Anyone interested in learning to sew? Our wonderful Sew Tessuti contributor Georgia, is very keen to start teaching what she knows at Tessuti's Sew Inn classes.
First up Georgia will start teaching the basics, from threading a machine, various stitches, seams and hems, to reading a commercial pattern and working out what size to cut and learning to lay them out onto fabric, ready for cutting. Soon enough Georgia will have you sewing up creations like this , this and eventually this and this!
