Hey everyone! :)

Hi everyone!

my name’s Ben and I’m a first year student Surrey Uni, I really look forward to coming along to the makerspace at some point.

It sounds unusual but I’m part of an amateur acting group that help at charity events and things like that. I need to make a bear costume haha :slight_smile: I’ve been told there’s a sewing machine at the space for people to use. How do I go about accessing this, I have the fabric and pattern all cut out already, just need to stitch it together.

Thanks in advance.

Is your fabric woven or stretchy (knitted)? If it’s the latter, I suggest you get of some ballpointed sewing machine needles, as this will make your life easier.

Hi Claire, thanks for the reply :slight_smile:

I’m gonna get hold of a ballpoint needle as I’ve been told this would be appropriate on previous occasions.

If I dropped by next tuesday and bought a sample of the fabric along, would it be possible to try it on the machine?

Thanks :slight_smile:
