Intro to Sewing Machines MARCH
- Hobbies & Special Interest
- Artisan's Asylum, Somerville MA
You'll come out of this fun, short class with a completed skirt that you can wear and a custom-made pattern to take home! You will learn how to measure yourself to create either a pencil skirt or circle skirt without using a pattern. This can be a stretchy or woven fabric skirt.
If you want to make a skirt for someone else, it is recommended that you choose the circle skirt and a stretch fabric, and come to class with their waist measurement in inches, and the desired length of the skirt.
A completed, wearable skirt, custom cut to fit you, and a custom pattern to take home to easily make more.
Basic machine sewing skills will be helpful, but not absolutely necessary. Note that you will not learn all the intricate troubleshooting and tensioning details in this class like you would in Intro to Sewing.
What to Bring:
Students should bring to class:
Carolyn Emberley sewed her first wallet by hand with some of her mom's quilting scraps and embroidery floss in the third grade. In addition to learning that embroidery floss is not the correct thing to use as thread, she learned to use her mother's sewing machine later that year, and has been sewing things ever since. She has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst. For most of her time there, she taught a variety of classes at the Student Union Craft Center, including sewing.
This one-day workshop will run from 11am-5pm on Saturday, January 19
