In our most popular sewing class, we elaborate on some elements covered in Sewing 101, add in some advanced skills (what are all these knobs/dials/attachments for?!?), and include a few fun projects to help you get some practice! Learn basic sewing skills including how to cut fabric, use a simple pattern, perform a few different stitches, as well as the ins and outs of fabric and fabric grain, proper cutting techniques. You will also learn how to operate a sewing machine. You will walk out having finished several simple projects including, drawstrings, pockets, buttonholes, buttons, hidden zippers, and finally, a tote bag (Perfect for that SF 10-cent bag ordinance and a great simple first project that won't terrify you!) All of these are handy skills for basic garment construction. This is an intensive class that will last all day with a 30-minute lunch break, so show up alert and leave the hangovers at home. After all, this is bootcamp guys!
None. We supply all fabric. Also, You'll be using a simple Janome 2212. Please do not bring your own machine.
