This is for you if you are new to sewing & scared to take the machine out of the box! Also great for people who haven’t sewn in a long time & want a refresher! It’s normal to feel overwhelmed with learning to use your sewing machine, you probably have friends & family who make it look so easy. Perhaps you’ve been watching the Great British Sewing Bee & wondered if you could ever be that good? Where do you start? How do you know what will work? How will you find the time to sit & decipher the instruction manual? How would you feel if you had a video that showed you each step?
It’s not just you, most people who don’t have help with their sewing struggle, wouldn’t it be great to cut out the frustration & struggle to be able to go over & over a process till you totally got it! If I told you that I have created that video, I explain each step, no jargon, you can keep replaying each step.
Beginners Sewing Machine Skills Online Class starts with how to fill the bobbin & thread your machine, most problems are caused by incorrect threading! Who knew that! You do now. We go onto simple seams & how to stop fraying, needles how/when/why to change them & which ones to use.
Why listen to me? I’ve been running sewing classes for the last 8 years & have sewn since I was a small child. I’ve made everything from wedding dresses, soft furnishings, clothes, bags & loads of upcycling! I want to help more people to enjoy sewing. There’s only so many I can reach face-to-face so moving online means I can help so many more people it’s a fantastic hobby which can really help with people’s mental health & well being.
I then go on to show you how to change the feet on your machine & how to use a couple of the more popular ones. Then it’s time for hems! I show you how to blind hem, which is a revelation for anyone who hasn’t done it before. No more hand-sewing hems that have come down or unsightly machining around the bottom of a garment. We also do a rolled hem which is suitable for very fine fabric. For all this, I’m only charging £19.99, think how it will catapult your sewing to another level! I used to charge £45 for this class, but I want to get it out to more people so they can feel the enjoyment & satisfaction of sewing!
I did a Sewing machine basics lesson today and now I feel so much more confident in being able to use my machine and not be afraid of it, from learning how to thread it and wind a bobbin to sewing different seams, hopefully, I will be following this up with more lessons very soon.

I would recommend this session to anyone who has a sewing machine languishing in the corner but does not have a clue what to do with it! A very friendly and relaxed environment with patient and thorough instruction. Highly recommended by this total beginner Thank you. March 2019
I first attended Beginners Sewing Machine Skills which gave me the confidence to actually use my sewing machine having bought it years previously. MaryAnne is a mine of information, she’s patient and no question is a silly question. The classes are welcoming, relaxed, and friendly. Maria August 2018
FAQ’s Will it work for me? Yes if you are prepared to do what I say in the video if you don’t understand please ask on www.facebook.com/sewingseams easy I will answer your question. Do I need to have the same sewing machine like the one in the video, no the basics are the same on most machines, in fact, I’m using 2 different machines as I’m working with a client part of the time.
You’ll be pleased to hear that I have completed the other French Seam, so I can’t wait till next Monday to put on the waistband. Hubby was very impressed said it looks like a skirt I would buy at White Stuff! Gail Mold
Enjoyed the venue, teacher, and fellow sewers very much, thank you Mary Anne for instilling confidence and enthusiasm again. Beverley McMahon
