What will you learn?
Learn basic and advanced sewing techniques, a range of machine and hand stitching types, the equipment you need and how to use it, how to measure correctly and choose the right fabrics, how to follow commercial patterns and create your own, and how to build a business. You’ll even put your new-found skills to practice in 8 guided projects to get your portfolio started off.

The Sewing Diploma Course begins by removing all trepidation, teaching you the basic parts and functions of your sewing machine, no matter which brand you have. You will quickly learn how to operate a sewing machine, including how to thread the bobbin and thread your sewing machine, and even gain the confidence to troubleshoot any minor problems that may arise, and understand how to care for your machine.

Before working on a garment for yourself or a client, it is important to take accurate measurements. You will learn how to correctly measure women and men and the importance of rechecking measurements as years go by, to allow for changes in weight or body shape.

A skill every good sewer should possess, following commercial patterns, offers hands-on practice of the sewing techniques that you will use in with your own designs. This course shows you how to understand and follow commercial patterns..
