Beginning students will learn the parts of the sewing machine, understand the basics of hand sewing, general techniques, and create simple, fun projects for themselves. The focus will always be upon clean, solid finishing and the student will form good sewing habits.
Intermediate students will learn more specific techniques, such as inserting grommets, working with trims, and pattern alterations. The strong habits built up from beginning sewing will continue to bear fruit as we learn more complex material.
Advanced students will explore pattern drafting and more specific techniques such as when to use cartridge pleating over box pleating and couture finishing techniques.
I focus on Machine sewing. I don't like hand sewing so i avoid it; however, i do know several stitches and when they are preferable. I really enjoy creating the projects that we will make together step by step; however, if you find a pattern you like, i can walk you through how to do it!
I learned to sew as a child and have made many items; from skirts and pajama pants, and stuffed animals to quilted Christmas stalkings!
I tend to work in cotton materials, but have some tips and pointers for other fabrics as well!
