Intro to Sewing Workshop

  • The Stitchery 24 Sandyford Pl Glasgow, G3 7NG United Kingdom (map)

One Day Course // Cost: £60 + Fabrics // Level: Beginner // Instructor: Susie Haigh, Designer - Podnip

Learn the basics of sewing and make your own unique re-usable tote bag.

For those of you who aren't able to commit to something longer, this one day course will help you get to grips with the fundamentals of sewing. Learn sewing machine basics, stitches & seams, fabric terms, simple hems and basic seam finishes. Apply your new found skills to making your own unique tote bag in a fabric of your choice. 

This workshop is open to complete beginners or anyone who just needs a refresher. And, as always, our studio comes complete with a sewing machine for each student. Or you may bring your own if you wish. 


  • A basic set of sewing skills and hopefully the confidence to go on and try more.
  • A unique tote bag (reusable shopping bag), in the fabric of your choice
  • A sample book, made by you and full of the techniques you've learned as part of the course. Use this for future reference. 
  • An Intro to Sewing e-book for future reference. This contains the pattern and instructions for your tote bag so you can make some more!
