We’d Sail Across A Notion for This Class

Beginning Sewing

This beginning sewing class will cover how to thread, operate and care for a sewing machine and which sewing machine needle is used for which project. This class will also cover which thread to use and how to choose the appropriate fabric for the project at hand. Then the class will learn how to read and use a pattern, we’ll cover notions and tools, each student will create at least one simple item and perhaps more as time allows. At the end of the term the student can expect to be able to confidently interpret patterns and continue to sew and create on their own.
