Sewing 101

Sewing 101 is a class for the student who has never picked up a needle and thread, worked on a sewing machine or is still at the beginning stages of learning. In this 4 class series, we start out by learning the basics of threading a needle and sewing 2 basic hand stitches. How to cut out and construct with a pattern is a key component of this class series. We end the series with a basic introduction of how a sewing machine works. Each student comes home with a complete sewing kit and a myriad of self-created projects – including one made with a speed-controlled sewing machine!
