Never touched a sewing machine yet? Don’t know what to start with? Sign up for our 4-week Beginner Sewing Course in our Sewing Café!
In this course you will learn all the basics you need to know on the sewing machine. In the first 1/1,5 lesson(s) you will make your first tote bag. After this we will start with your first garment and create your own skirt or t-shirt!* You can choose between two types of skirts (wrap skirt or circle skirt) or a easy to make basic tee (crop or longer, you can choose the length).
Follow this 4-week course in the evening (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) or on Sundays (morning or afternoon). The course is 2 hours per week. Guidance is provided by fashion designer Alba Tijm or Nathalie Goedegebuure. Classes are both in Dutch and English. You can start in the week of your wishes.**
You can choose to have the materials in- or excluded in this course. If you choose the materials included, you will get a little starters-kit with pins and a bobbin. Besides that you will get the organic materials to make your own tote bag and skirt/t-shirt. For the skirt you can choose the fabric yourself in our store. With the tote bag you can choose different colors (beige, pink, black or turquoise). If you choose to follow the course without materials, you can download the pdf with a little list of the materials you need to bring.
What’s included in the course:
– 4 lessons of 2 hours in our Sewing Cafe on the day of your wishes.
– Professional guidance by fashion designers Nathalie Goedegebuure and Alba Tijm
– If you choose to have the materials included, this is included: box of pins, bobbin, the materials for one tote bag (fabric, straps, thread) and one garment (skirt or t-shirt: fabric, thread and if necessary a zipper or buttons).***

**At the moment it is almost always possible to start in the same week, if you’d like to, but sometimes the lesson you prefer is already full the first week, it can mean that you have to start one week later. We are also really flexibel, if you’d like to skip a week or follow a lesson on a different day, this is also possible. Send us an e-mail for more information if you want to follow the course on different days. (email@example.com)
***We are not responsible for finishing the pieces in time. We aim for you to finish it in those 4 lessons, but if you have particular wishes that are slowing the process, it can happen that you don’t finish in time. If it is not finished and you need extra help, you are of course welcome at our normal sewing lessons to finish it.
If you ordered the materials included, you can choose the materials for one tote bag and one garment. If you finish earlier than the 4 lessons, you can start a new project, but the materials are not included anymore.
****Are you a beginner but you don’t feel like making these items? You can also join our sewing cafe with your own project-ideas, you can book a sewing-lesson-package here.
