Description

Learn to Sew: The basics of garment sewing
Three Thursday mornings, 9am - 11am - $75 for the 3 class series

Have you ever been to the "big box" chain fabric stores and felt intimidated by all the fabrics and patterns available? You want to learn to sew your own clothing, or sew for your children, and you don't know where to begin? And there's no one to help you figure out the maze of choosing a pattern and fabric?

Don't have a sewing machine yet, and want experience on one to see if sewing is for you before you take the plunge into purchasing a sewing machine? Our purpose is to make that experience more personal, more local, more targeted to you and what you'd like to sew.

This series is for you. You may take the series as many times as you like, building on your skills.

l. How a sewing machine works: Functions, simple maintenance. Fabric know-how, choosing fabrics. Make a pillow. You’ll learn how to measure, cut and sew with seam allowances.

2. Choosing a simple pattern (for child or adult). Choosing a suitable fabric. Reading and understanding patterns. Cutting out your garment.

3. Sewing your garment. Zippers, buttons, pockets, collars.

NOTE: Students will receive a 15% discount on purchases of fabric, patterns and supplies for this class
