Beginner Sewing Class: Sewing 101 is a 4-part series designed specifically for beginners; we help you learn to sew from step 1 — you can even bring your machine still in the box!
Class 1: We jump right in, teaching you how to thread your machine, wind a bobbin and use the stitch selector. You’ll even make a napkin with mitered corners to take home at the end of your very first class.
Class 2: You’ll learn to sew a reversible tote bag. But you’ll learn so much more about fabric, print directionals, picking a lining vs your exterior fabric, installing handles, top stitching and more.
Class 3: We’re making a roll-up organizer. This clever project is perfect for storing your sewing tools, make-up brushes, crayons or colored pencils, toiletries and more. We’ll be reinforcing the material you learned in the first two classes, learning to make bias tape, adding pockets and more.
Class 4: Graduation night is a big one; you’ll make a piped zippered pillow! You’ll use all of the skills from classes 1-3 and then you’ll learn how to cover cording, install a zipper using your zipper foot, sewing down cording and more.
We’ve taught hundreds of people just like you how to sew — not just sewing that one project in class, but really LEARNING how to sew, so you’ll be able to make projects at home on your own. Our seasoned instructors that have the knowledge and patience to set you on the right path.
Skills You’ll Learn: all the basics of your machine (you can even bring it still in the box!), backtacking, corners, curves, zippers, linings, bindings, installing handles, hand stitching and finishing.
