- Patterns, fitting & cutting
- Sewing terminology
- Best stitches for your project

No sewing experience necessary. Enthusiasm for learning to sew!
Bring your portable sewing machine if you have one- it is important for you to become familiar with your own machine. We provide fabric and notions needed for the class. If you do not have a sewing machine, don't worry- you can pre-register to use one of our machines by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org upon registration. As part of the class you will be required to put together a simple sewing kit with basic tools such as scissors, measuring tape, etc. Nan will provide a sewing kit list to participants.
Class size limited to 6 students. Minimum 3 students. We reserve the right to cancel the class if we do not have the minimum amount of students. If we cancel, we will refund you in full and notify you.
You may cancel and get a full refund up to three days before the class. After that, refunds are contingent on us being able to fill your seat. Under no circumstances do we offer refunds to individuals who cancel on the same day. This ruins the party for everyone.
