About this Event

This is a great class for the absolute beginner sewer. You will learn how to sew a basic fabric basket that is great for housing a plant, storing all your favourite things or adding some unique decoration to your home. In the class, we will go over some basic sewing techniques to construct a simple lined fabric basket. Once you make one, you will then learn how to customise it and make as many as you can.

Techniques covered in this class include:

  • Setting up the sewing machine
  • Winding a bobbin
  • Cutting out basic patterns
  • Using lining
  • Using interfacing
  • Making boxed corners
  • Topstitching
  • Cutting with a ruler and rotary cutter
