Toyota understands that there is currently a trend of people who want to learn how to use a sewing machine and ignite the creative spark within, but, without having the disposable time or funds for one-on-one lessons it’s difficult to know where, and how, to begin.
We love to hear of people’s passion to invest in this fun and rewarding skill so we want to help you, believe in you, and encourage you to make the most of your sewing hobby and machine. We want you to see, and experience, that not all things need to start off being bought from the shelves in your favourite shop, and not all things need to end up in the bin …they just a little TLC from you and your sewing machine!!
The best advice to get started is, simply … just to start!!
You can’t expect something to come from nothing so don’t be afraid to give it a go! We can promise that once you get started you won’t be the only one who’s had to unpick a few stitches or take a 5 minute ‘time-out’ along the way. Remember that starting small is not starting defeated. Don’t put too much pressure on your first piece or projects … just enjoy them!! Once you get past the initial learning curve and get your machine running & set up in the right way for you, things will just click into place pretty naturally and quickly.
