Undertaking a sewing course is a great introduction to sewing for beginners. Your tutor will teach you about patterns, design, and sewing techniques.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, you will gain new skills in sewing either way. You can also browse teachers for a kids sewing class.
Sewing is a great skill to have, and one that has lost its popularity over the years. In the modern world, there is less of a need for people to sew, since everything is so accessible to us; we have a hole in our jumper; we throw it out or take it to the alteration store. We could live in a much more sustainable world if we were able to confidently design, sew and alter our own clothes, sheets and blankets. It can take time and you may have to put hours and hours into making something yourself, but the reward is invaluable. Sewing courses are around, but are often pricey and within a school or organisation. Private lessons might be for you if you’re looking to learn the basics or master the machine.
Sewing allows us to get creative. We can learn to design our own clothing, create a quilt for a loved one, or sew on vintage buttons to a jacket or cardigan. It’s a lot of fun to have a hobby like sewing. You can learn to sew the clothes you like in any pattern you like (so long as you can find it) and make sure it fits right. Online shopping can get frustrating–so often we get clothes in the mail that don’t fit quite right, or something looks a little different than it looked online. When sewing your own clothes, you have full control. You can set goals for yourself and feel a sense of accomplishment when you finish a garment.
Before you start your first sewing class, there are a few things you can buy or borrow to get a head start. Firstly, for the course, you will need a sewing machine. You won’t need a fancy machine for beginner projects, so long as it works. Next, you will need some thread and fabric. You can find a range of different fabrics at plenty of fabric stores that may even be at the local shopping centre. If you’re looking to save money or find something a little different, op shops are a great place to find fabric–you will be sure to find a unique pattern at a bargain price.
To look after your fabric and make neat, precise pieces, it’s a good idea to invest in some good fabric scissors, to use only on fabrics–not paper or anything else. It’ll be easier to work on your sewing projects with some glass head pins and it’s always good to have hand sewing needles just in case. You will need a tape measure to measure up your work and lastly, an iron and ironing board to get creases out and tidy up edges.
There are plenty of sewing projects you can take on. You can make your own garments or get into embroidery. Once you get the basic skills of sewing down, the world is pretty much your oyster. For instance, maybe there’s something you’ve been searching for, like a specific knit jumper or dress. You can go to your nearest fabric store and find the perfect pattern or wool and learn how to make it yourself. This way, you’ve likely saved some money, accomplished something great, you will make something unique and participate in sustainable fashion!
Here are some other basic project ideas for beginners:
For more advanced students, sewing classes can help you to master your craft and your tutor can be a mentor for you, especially if you’re looking to get into the fashion industry. Sewing lessons are also helpful to students undertaking a design or fashion course at school or university. Your tutor can guide your through the content, help you with your technique, or can encourage you to work on projects outside of your course. Fashion and design are rewarding and creative careers, but it can sometimes be hard to get your foot in the door–an experienced teacher could steer you in the right direction.
Sewing is one of the most sustainable ways to buy clothing and accessories. The fast fashion industry is one of the largest pollutants in the world. Fast fashion refers to clothing trends coming in and out of fashion–which means they are often cheaply made, not durable, and go out of fashion quickly. Sewing your own clothing garments means you have a small part in helping out, have control of the quality, durability and design, so the garment lasts longer and you get a lot of wear out of it. You will be able to create a garment that fits you just right. If you decide to take on fashion as a career, you will be encouraging a more ethical fashion industry!
Other than being a handy skill that can lead you to making or selling your own clothes and altering garments, sewing has other benefits. Sewing reduces stress and anxiety and encourages mindfulness. Sewing is a meditative and sometimes repetitive act that can help us to release tension and immerse ourselves in the task at hand. Sewing improves hand-eye coordination and our attention to detail. Activities like sewing and doing other crafts increases dopamine in the brain, which helps us feel more happy and positive. Sewing keeps our minds active, focused and clear as we need to remember specific instructions. As we get older, this can help to prevent dementia.
