For total beginners--if you've been wanting to learn to sew or you haven't touched a machine in years, this is the class for you! In just one session we'll walk you through the basics; you'll leave class with a finished elastic-waisted skirt. Here's what we'll cover:
- Basic intro to a sewing machine, including how to sew a straight seam
- How to measure the body properly for garment fitting
- How to cut fabric accurately
- Pinning and sewing seams
- Making an elastic waistband and hem
Fabric will be available for purchase in our retail shop. (If you prefer to bring your own fabric, you'll need two yards of a medium-weight woven; we recommend cotton or cotton blends.) All tools needed to complete this class will be provided, included sewing machines courtesy of BERNINA of America.
