CakesJanome machines are available, if you don’t have your own machine – please mention this on booking.

Some students like to learn on their own machine so they can sew in between classes. Please ensure that your machine is in good working order and that you have the items on the supplies list as well as the items you need to make your first project. You will have your own desk space and room to cut out your pattern as well as access to iron & ironing board and kitchen.

Please arrive in plenty of time so that the class can start on time.  We will have coffee and cake/biscuits for you and will have 10 minutes at the end of the class to discuss what you will need for next class.  If you have something specific you would like to make please bring all the information along with you to your first class.
