Sewing Crash Course with Parent/Child option

Learn the basics of sewing in this starting from scratch class

  • Learn how to operate a sewing machine including; threading the machine, winding a bobbin, and how to use different stitch settings.
  • Practice some basic stitches.
  • Learn how to read a commercial pattern, including how to determine what you will need for your project.
  • Learn about the grain and bias of fabric and how to cut out a pattern properly.        
  • Go over proper sewing room set up for successful sewing, where we will talk about essential tools to get started. 

This is a preliminary class and is designed to give you all the info you need before you start sewing. It is HIGHLY recommended to get our “Sewing Skills Workshop Add On” to make it a complete course. The Sewing Skills Workshop Add On gives you 2 additional classes to take everything you learned in the Crash Course and put it into practice; these Add On classes give you the opportunity to get though a project with an experienced instructor by your side.

What you need to bring: An easy beginner pattern that you plan on making (whether for the Add On classes or on your own); pajama pants, aprons, simple skirts, or easy hand bags are all good options, try to avoid anything with darts, binding, or knit fabric (these are only suggestions, please use your own discretion). If you are making clothing, make sure the pattern is the right size before you buy it. You will need your bust, waist, and hip measurements
Note: ***sewing pattern sizes differ greatly from store clothing sizes, always check your measurements with the pattern before you buy!***
Sewing Skills Workshop Add On package: Add on 2 Sewing Skills Workshops to this class, and work on your own project. (please know that everyone works at their pace, and we cannot guarantee that you will finish your project in the 2 classes)
Crash Course Child Add On: Add a child (13 and under) with you and they will get the Sewing Skills Workshop package add on for free (adult must also sign up for SSW package).
Optional: You are welcome to bring your own machine to learn on, or you can use one of ours. 
 Bonus!: Participants will receive a 15% discount on our Sewing Skills Workshop for 6 months after they take the course to help them continue building their sewing skills.

"I really enjoyed the crash course and learned a lot. Jacquie is a patient teacher and very encouraging. The class is completely hands-on and (hard to believe) you come away with a completed project" ~ Karen Hewey
