This listing is for the teen and adult sewing workshop for beginners.
Do you want to learn how to sew, read sewing patterns, or upcycle and alter your clothing? Do you want to learn how to use your sewing machine and all the feet and tools needed to sew garments, quilts, alterations, and other projects? If so, this workshop is for you!
Before one can properly construct clothing and other items and begin to express individual creativity, she has to master the tools of the machine and other aspects of the production process. In this workshop students will learn everything they need to know about their sewing machines and accessories, and with these basics will already be able to start their own independent projects.
This is a 3 hour workshop for beginners. Snacks and beverages included.
In this workshop you will learn:
•An overview of your basic domestic sewing machine (mechanical and computerized)
•Choosing your needles, thread, and fabric
•Blind hems, buttonholes, and button sewing (Students will learn how to perform these stitches on their machines, but due to time constraints some may not reach a point of actually practicing them. This is built into the Beginners 102 class, where they will learn and work with zippers, buttons, etc.)
•Machine maintenance & troubleshooting
Mary Grace will contact you after you secure your spot in the class.
Machines and supplies are provided. You are more than welcome to bring your own machine. It's always best to sew on your own machine!
