Have a read of a new post on my blog about how to organise your bobbins!
Last Sunday five students arrived at MIY Workshop armed with new sewing machines that they were determined to get to grips with!
After a few hours practicing some basic techniques and generally getting more familiar with their machines, here’s what they thought of the day:
“A brilliant course if you’ve got a new machine and you need to learn the basics. Takes the fear out of sewing!” Jayne
“I thoroughly enjoyed the class. Perfect for beginners who need to get to know and make friends with their machine :o) Now I can practice these new skills to help me get ready for other classes! Can’t wait to come again. Thank you Wendy.” Jess
“Demystifying – I can go home and actually use my machine now!” Karen
“Really useful workshop – I’m no longer scared of sewing machines! Definitely gave me the basics and inspiration to start some projects. Thanks!” Harriet
“Wendy was great! She explained sewing in a simple, easy-to-understand way. It doesn’t seem so scary now! I’m ready to experiment with sewing.” Serena

And if you need a few basic sewing tips to get you started, there are lots over on the MIY Collection website, including:
I will be running this workshop again later in the year. If you’d like to get a chance to pre-book before the workshop is advertised, you can join my priority mailing list by contacting me (Wendy) at post[at]wendyward.co.uk
