Sewing skills and techniques for beginners and more experienced sewers. All levels welcome!

Beginning sewers will learn basic skills and techniques and those with some experience will improve their skills and learn tips and tricks. Note: If you're a beginner, you'll start by making a lined bag, which teaches all the basic skills involved.
After that you'll move on to a project of your choice, in consultation with the tutor. Bring scissors, a Bernina bobbin (can be purchased from CEC office on the day of your course for $7), 70cm of cotton fabric, pins, thread, an 18 cm zip and tape measure to the first session.

If you're a returning student, or have already mastered the basic skills, you'll work on your own project so please bring along whatever you're working on (or something new) and your sewing kit.

Outcomes: By the end of the course, you'll have been introduced to basic skills in dressmaking, if beginners, or further skills for the more experienced.

You'll be able to:
- Use all sewing machine equipment and demonstrate basic sewing techniques (basic seams and finishes)
- Begin to read a commercial pattern and select appropriate materials for task
- Cut out and construct a garment using techniques learned
- (In addition), use a variety of advanced sewing techniques e.g. rolled hems, various zip insertions (invisible and standard), make buttonholes or line garments.

Presented by Cathie Anderton. $189
