Boys and Girls ages 10 years and older are invited to enroll for the beginner sewing lessons. Class is 2 – 3 hour sessions. Sessions are scheduled “one on one” and I can provide a sewing machine if needed for the classroom. You will learn to sew seams as you make to easy projects. We will then use a regular pattern to cut and sew pants. Book your class early for the Summer vacation.
Once you complete the basic sewing class you have “sew” many choices. I have made a few suggestions and framed some classes around some patterns I was inspired by. I hope I see you in class soon and you keep up the sewing practice, practice makes perfect!
Beyond the basics BoHo style! Enroll Now! Easy Fashion Sewing for the beginner. Make yourself a beautiful Kimono using Simplicity 8172. Two -3 hour sessions include reading the pattern, layout, cutting, construction and sewing a bias facing. Read more about sewing this lovely fashion in my personal “Sew-a-Long”. I am planning to write several blog articles when I construct my personal garment.
Beyond the basics Shirt– If you decide to make a skirt you can pick from any commercial pattern. Purchase the pattern by hip size. Bring fabric and notions like zipper, all purpose polyester sewing thread, elastic, or buttons to class.
Beyond the basics for Boys and Men! If you have taken a Beginner Sewing Class with me and are ready for a new challenge, learn to make a short sleeved button down shirt with a collar. Make a tropical themed shirt that looks cool doing the hot Summer months.
Retro Sewing for the intermediate! Try a beautiful shirt waist dress, Butterick 6672, to sharpen your sewing skills. This dress is lovely and a great garment for the Summer season. Learn fitting, interfacing, facings, pockets, buttonholes, casings, hemming and more making this lovely dress.
Beyond the Basics Fit and Flare is a very flattering classic style of dress. The garment features a fitted waist, a center back zipper, gathered or pleated shirt, darts or princess lines, a jeweled neckline or split neckline, facings or lining in the bodice and can be sleeveless, have short , cap or long sleeves. To fit, cut, mark and sew this dress will probably take us 3 – 3 hour sessions. When you have completed this session you are ready to tackle some of the most advanced fitting and sewing projects.
In our next Lap Quilt session we are learning to applique’. I am inviting all attendees to bring a machine and try out the techniques used to create the Fan, Dresden plate and Sun Bonnet Sue block . I will supply a pattern for the Sun Bonnet block in class. I will list materials to bring on the Lap Quilt club page. We are now on Lesson 5. If you would like to join our group, I can bring you up to date in one on one lessons. All beginner’s are welcome.
