Sew With Us!

Are you a sewing beginner or looking to try a new craft? Look no further as we’ve put together a complete beginners guide to sewing. If you’ve always wanted to create cosy blankets or cushions for your home, alter a dress that doesn’t quite fit right, or stitch together a gift for a loved one, this is the ideal step-by-step guide for you. With a little patience and practise, Hochanda has everything you need to get sewing like the experts. From machines and templates, to demonstrations showing you exactly how to use them, we have you covered.

Step 1: Choose your sewing machine

There are a range of options to consider when choosing your sewing machine. Whether you’re on a budget or wanting the best of the bunch, here on Hochanda we have a vast selection of machines to choose from. The Husqvarna Viking Class 100Q is great for beginners, or if you want something more advanced then the Six Penny Memories Britannia is a cutting-edge option. With every machine being a little bit different, take a look at each product description to really get to grips with the benefits of each. You’ll even find a rewind show for each machine, so you can watch it in action before you purchase. Once your machine arrives, have a read of your user manual and it’s time to get started!

Step 2: Pick a simple sewing project

So you’ve chosen your sewing machine, now’s when the fun begins! Firstly, you’ll need the basic supplies such as fabric, thread, bobbins, scissors, pins and a seam ripper. Then, once the basics are covered, it’s time to pick your first sewing project. We have hundreds to choose from, whether you’re wanting to create cushions, bags, brooches, teddy bears or even a giant sunflower. Each kit comes complete with everything you need including fabric, thread and easy to follow instructions.

Step 3: Practise!

The key to learning any new skill is practise! Follow our live demonstrations or take a look at the Hochanda Blog where we have a range of sewing tutorials that are easy to follow and simple to do from the comfort of your own home. From patchwork quilts to sewing your dog a bone, our blog ambassadors share their step-by-step instructions and photos to help you perfect the technique.
