101 Basic Sewing Series



These classes are meant for those new to sewing and techniques for everyday sewing will be taught while you make interesting and useful projects. 

Week 1:   You want to start learning to sew! We will teach you how to make a pillow.  This is a great way to start learning!  In this class you will be making an 18" square pillow with a ruffle.  Techniques for this session include keeping a consistent seam allowance, basting, fabric management and gathering. 


Week 2:   To expand  your sewing skills a lined drawstring bag will be made.  It is a fun and useful beginner project and will help you practice. You will continue to work on consistent seam allowances and fabric management.  You will also learn how to make  a casing to pull your drawstring through, how to make a lining for the bag and how to piece together the outside of the bag. 

Week 3:   You've made it through two classes (square pillow, drawstring bag) now you're not really a beginner, right?  You've got a few yards of stitching under your belt.  So, let's do something a little more challenging.  How about a Tri-Fold wallet with a button flap?  Yes, You can do it! 

A tri-fold wallet with a button flap is a fun and useful beginner/intermediate project to help you practice.  You will continue to work on consistent seam allowances and fabric management.  You will also learn how to make card slots, cash pocket and notebook pocket and make a buttonhole.  You will also work on your pattern reading and top stitching skills.
