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 evening we’ll walk you through the basics; you’ll leave class with a finished elastic-waisted skirt. Here’s what we’ll cover:
Q&AQ: Can I make the skirt any length I want? A:
- 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
Yes!Q: Are materials provided and included in cost of the class? A:
No. Fabric will be available for purchase in our retail shop. You will select your choice of fabric.
If you prefer to bring your own fabric, you’ll need two yards of a medium-weight woven. Cotton or cotton blends are recommended.
All tools needed to complete this class will be provided and sewing machines will be available courtesy of BERNINA of America.
