No, you don't need to buy your own - the equipment you need will be in school.

I'd use their machines and find out which suit you before you buy one.

Thanks for your advice. Did you take Textiles as your GCSE ? I am in desperate need for some revision notes , I am on AQA board . I have still not bought any book but would like to do some reading to get myself acquainted with the subject. Please could you help or point me in the right direction?

I'm a maths teacher but did Needlework [as it was called then].

When the Textiles teacher was ill then I had to help out with lessons! I still make things and help with costumes for the school play.

Try googling for AQA revision notes or go to a library -
