In this class students will learn the basics of sewing, as well as, how to operate and navigate a sewing machine. They will also begin to learn how to layout, read and understand basic patterns. This journey will teach each student how to use basic sewing tools, which stitch to use for a given application and why. Students will also learn how to properly pin and cut fabric, and how to straight stitch and zigzag. Students are encouraged to experiment with the skills they have learned and to exercise their creativity during their lesson time.
This is not just a project-producing class, but a skill-developing opportunity. Students meet once weekly for 60 minute sewing lesson. New students can join our program at any time throughout the year as long as space allows. Program runs Sept – May. (*We require a 30 day notice for early withdrawal.) All students have the opportunity to participate in a Fashion Show in late Spring.
Students are provided with a speed controlled sewing machine and all necessary sewing tools during class-time. Students are responsible for providing their own materials and notions. You will be given a supply list upon registration.
