Learn to Sew
Here's a great opportunity to try something new - learning to sew.
Our classes provide a relaxed, fun and social way to learn how to sew. These classes are aimed at people with no or very limited experience in sewing.
During the 10 week course you will learn basic sewing skills including setting up and threading a machine, hand sewing and machine stitches, measuring garment sizes, altering clothing items, reading, using and cutting patterns, and of course, sewing.
Cost: the course is totally FREE of charge - the only cost is the purchase of fabric ( which you can pick up really cheap at Spotlight or you are welcome to look through some of the donated fabrics we have)
Location: this course will be running at the Bendigo Neighbourhood Hub and the Karen Social Support Foundation (located in Long Gully - note: this location is for non-English speaking Backgrounds).
Contact BNH to register your interest in this course - expected to commence early March however this will be based on enrolment numbers.
