About the event

Join us at the Preloved Studio for our sewing machine workshop to reduce textiles waste! 

You’ll be learning sewing machine skills including:

  • How to sew, trim and turn out a beautiful corner
  • How and when to add topstitching, keeping it straight and even
  • Threading and using an overlocker
  • Sewing and cutting a buttonhole

Workshop skill level: Improver (you already have basic sewing machine skills under your belt.)

Meet your workshop facilitator: Fiona Graham

Fiona has many years’ experience in the clothing and home textiles industry and has a lifelong love of sewing and making things. She worked in manufacturing, and in product development for major high street retailers. She has a wide knowledge of all garment types and sewing techniques to share!
