Can’t sew? We can fix that. Join us for our comprehensive beginner course! Learn how to sew while exploring the world of fabric, commercial patterns, alterations, and classic sewing techniques.
You will leave this class with a pair of cozy pyjama pants fitting to you!
You will learn to:
- Operate a sewing machine
- Sewing techniques
- Properly press and iron garments for sewing
- Take proper measurements
- Select the right fabric for your project
- Work with commercial patterns (and pick the pattern that best compliments you!)
Students will need a domestic sewing machine, iron, and basic sewing kit at home to practice and complete homework (approximately 20 hours). EcoEquitable will supply the sewing machine during class.
Prerequisites: no sewing experience is required but a serious desire to learn a LOT in a short period of time.
All materials needed for the course are included in the class fee.
