Frequently Asked Questions

I havent used a sewing machine before...


Please dont worry, you will wonder what you have been worrying about after your first day. All our machines have a direct drive motor so can be controlled easily. We havent had anybody struggle yet !




What if I forget everything when I leave the course ?


No problem ! We are here to support you after the course too...we dont just leave you to figure it out. You will have the tutors number when you leave the course just in case you have any questions, get stuck or forget anything. The most common problem a student has when they have left the course is that something has happened with their machine that they havent come across before so we would do a Video call with you either through Zoom, Whatsapp or Skype.




Do I have to bring anything with me ?


We recommend a notebook & pen. A camera is always handy too....Oh and dont forget your lunch ;-) If you are on one of the seat courses and want to bring your own seat please do as it will be helpful when you leave us to reference back to. If you dont have one dont worry we will have one for you to train on for the duration of your course.
