Instructor : Farzaana (F.A.R Blankets) & Azzah (Sewfabby)
If you have an interest to sew but don’t have the guts to take the first step to press that sewing machine pedal, this class is for you. Farzaana of FAR Blankets and Azzah of Sewfabby has prepared a Basic 101 Sewing workshop for those with zero knowledge on setting up your sewing machine. Learn how to thread the machine, wind your first bobbin and get first hand tips on making sure you get a good straight stitch. By the end of this workshop, you’ll bring home your own tote bag. Who knows you might even book your first sewing machine at our bazaar right after the workshop. Places are limited for this popular workshop!
Note : Students are required to bring their own half yard (50 cm / 18 in) printed fabrics for this workshop. Fabrics can be purchased from the Bazaar at the event.

Farzaana Abd. Rahman who hails from KL, is the founder and maker behind F.A.R Blankets. Specializing in blankets and pillows, she confesses that the vibrant modern textile prints are what inspired her to create beddings and personalized blankets. Farzaana started out making baby booties, but it was from that admiration for fabric prints that lead her to creating custom blankets. As blankets have a larger surface, it was through this that she could share her love for her favorite prints and color combos.
Learning to sew came from her own determination to learn a life. Ever since she was young, Farzaana just loves cutting and piecing things together, now she can be seen expanding her bedding line at @f.a.r_blankets
