Tuesday Tutorials are a series of online workshops covering a variety of sewing techniques. Each workshop will cover a different topic and unlike online videos they are live and interactive, giving you the chance to ask questions and sew with other students.
The next best thing to coming to class!
These classes will be weekly on a Tuesday afternoon starting at 1pm. Each week there will be a new workshop with accompanying handout and kit for practising, allowing you to built up a portfolio of sewing techniques for future reference.

How will it work?

The class will take place in a ‘virtual classroom’ using the video meeting software Zoom. You will need to have Zoom installed on the device you intend to use for the class, it’s free and easy to use. If you haven’t used Zoom before we suggest you have a practice before the class. Please download the free version via this link https://zoom.us/meetings

  • We also suggest choosing a quiet area to set up your machine next to your device. To achieve the best internet connection please reduce as many items as you can that are connected to your router.
  • On the morning of the class we will email you a link that will take you directly to the class. All you need to do is click on the link just before we are due to start. We suggest signing in 10 mins before the start time, you will be held in a virtual waiting room.
  • We encourage you to turn on your own video and audio so we can interact, and you can ask us questions – the idea is that it’s as much like an in-person class as possible!

What you will need on the day 

  • Sewing machine fitted with a size 70/80 needle and threaded with your choice of Gutermann Sew – All thread colour.
