Next round of classesApril 20, 2015
I’m ready for another round of sewing classes! Are you?
I will again be offering the intro class, on a Tuesday this time, for those who couldn’t make it for Thursdays.
Sewing Room Basics
A comprehensive class for beginners. This class will be two 2-hour sessions, and will cover sewing machine anatomy, stitch types, fabric properties, garment descriptions/pattern shapes, taking measurements, prepping your fabric, tips for cutting, sewing seams, and finishing touches. Hands on practice is involved to create your own unique throw pillow. This class is $60 for the two sessions and includes the cost of materials. Next sessions will be Tuesdays May 19th and 26th, from 7-9pm.
Some simple projects to work on…
Sew yourself some comfy loose-fitting pants for lounging around the house, making the waistband with either elastic or drawstring. Choose and buy your own fabric colour/print before coming to the class, either cotton, flannel, fleece, or satin. Have your own paper pattern to take home, and make yourself an army of pants. This 2-hour class is $40 and includes the cost of the pattern and elastic/drawstring. Offered Thursday May 21st from 7-9pm.
Raglan Sleeve T-shirt
Try your hand at sewing with stretchy knit fabrics, and construct yourself a simple custom fit t-shirt. Learn how to manipulate a pattern to suit your preferences for sleeve length and neck width, and have your own paper pattern to take home and make as many t-shirts as you wish! Practice sewing and finishing seams in a cotton knit, and learn how to sew ribbing into a neckhole. This 3-hour class is $50 and includes the cost of the pattern and materials. Offered Thursday May 28th from 7-10pm.
