Sew Many Tips and Tricks

Not all sewing is in the making. Whether you are new to sewing or have been sewing for some time, there are always new tips and time-saving tricks to learn (such as how to unpick overlocking efficiently). Step away from the sewing machine and learn some invaluable information on equipment, fabric, patterns and sewing.


What is the value of a reef knot, a water colour pencil, a chopstick and a small rectangle of white paper to sewing? How do you unpick straight stitch and overlocking quickly, cleanly and efficiently? Which are the best sharpest cheapest fabric cutting scissors and pins to use? All will be revealed in this sewing expert’s knowledge sharing talk.

Note: This is not a hands-on sewing course, but rather a talk and demonstration outlining all the tips and tricks our expert has for you.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:

  • Have increased general sewing knowledge.
  • Understand the value of assembling the best and most appropriate tools for sewing
  • Understand the role of appropriate fabric to the successful outcome of a sewing project.
  • Recognise the importance of correct grainline placement in laying out pattern pieces (on fabric)
  • Cut pieces out efficiently and prepare for sewing
