teach me to sew!

beginning, intermediate or advanced

small group (4-6) 

 

beginning : if you have a sewing machine in a box or on a table, just sitting there, mocking you quietly, this is your class! no previous sewing experience required - nada at all. learn how to use every part of your machine, how to read a commercial or self-drafted pattern and how to cut and construct a pair of pants with a drawstring waist! 

intermediate : if you have taken a beginning sewing class anywhere and sewn up a few garments on your own but want to take the mystery/scare factor out of things like darts, style lines, zippers, collars, button plackets, pockets and simple linings, this is your class! provide your own pattern of choice or use one i pick out based on your garment desire!

small groups (4-6 people)

recommended scheduling :

four 3-hour once a weeks sessions
