Always wanted to learn to sew? Come along to this fun class and make your own Tote Bag and Apron while learning the basics of sewing.
In this class you will learn how to:
- thread and use a sewing machine
- use an overlocker
- lay out and cut your fabric
- sew a garment together
You will learn lots of helpful tips along the way about design, fabric, and construction techniques. If there is time, we will make a bucket hat.
The tote and apron patterns will be supplied, but you will need to bring pins, fabric, thread, interfacing, etc. Full details will be provided on Week 1 so bring a pad and paper to class.
On the first night you will be learning basic skills and becoming familiar with the sewing machines and overlocker. Karen will discuss suitable fabrics and interfacing options with you, how much you will need, and the best places to shop.
Bring your own machine or use the class Bernina machines available. Course limited to 12 students.
If you already know a little bit about sewing, you may be ready for our course Sewing Next Steps where you'll learn to make a simple A-line or straight skirt. Search our website or Eventfinda for more details.
