Introduction to Sewing
This class is designed for students who want to learn beginner sewing skills or if it has been quite a while since you have sewed, and you want a refresher course. You begin by learning sewing machine basics, and you will be working on a project in the first class. You will learn to cut fabric using a pattern and printed measurements. The goal is to learn multiple techniques that you can apply to other sewing projects. You will be making a pincushion, pillow covers, a tote bag, and an apron. You will be washing and pressing fabrics at home. As we get further into our course, you may be asked to cut and press at home also. See you in class!
