Part 1 will be covered in a 2.5 hour class, and part 2 in a 3 hour class.
For part 1 you will need to bring: an easy beginner pattern. (Pajama pants, a simple skirt, apron, or hand bag are all good options, try to avoid anything with darts, binding, or knit fabric), please make sure it is the right size for you before you buy it, you will need your bust, waist, and hip measurements. Note: ***pattern sizes differ greatly from store clothing sizes, always check your measurements with the pattern before you buy.***
For part 2 you will need to bring: all your fabric and materials needed for your project including thread. Remember to prewash your fabric.
Optional: You are welcome to bring your own machine to learn on, or you can use one of ours. As part of the class we will be talking about what to look for when purchasing a sewing machine.
