  • How to cut fabric accurately

All other tools and notions needed to complete this class will be provided, included sewing machines courtesy of BERNINA of America.

Please note: it is always advisable to pre-wash any fabric being used for garment sewing as many fabrics can shrink, especially those containing cotton or linen. To prewash, simply wash and dry the fabric as you would the finished garment. If you buy fabric the day-of class and can't pre-wash (very common for classroom settings!), please keep in mind that finished garments must always be washed cold and line dried to prevent shrinkage.
