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 make a skirt fit for YOU and a cute sewing apron too!
You will learn to:
- Operate a sewing machine and serger
- Sewing techniques (stay stitching, ease, darts, pleats, buttonhole and more!)
- Properly press and iron garments for sewing
- Take proper measurements
- Identify and use various types of fabric, thread, and interfacing
- Select the right fabric for your project
- Install an invisible zipper
- Work with commercial patterns (and pick the pattern that best compliments you!)
- Construct a basic garment (skirt)
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.
