I cannot tell you how many individuals have come to me and told me, "I have this sewing machine but I don't know how to use it." This is your opportunity to learn how to perform basic tasks with that sewing machine that might be collecting dust.
Being able to sew means being able to save money and make something that is unlike anything you could buy in any store.
I will demonstrate how to use your machine, how to care for your machine, how to read a pattern, how to preserve those special patterns that you use most often and how to be creative and make something that is yours and yours alone.
1. No experience necessary.
2. I provide machines for the first few classes.
3. I provide all basic supplies needed for these classes.
Students learn about the sewing machine and various things it can do -- how to thread and operate it, how to sew seams and finishes, and, of course, everyone will construct and sew some fun basic items like pillow case, cushion cover with appliqué, apron, coasters etc.
My program is designed for children ages 8-16 and adults who have an interest in fashion design, sewing, and illustration.
My goal is to help kids take this “arts” seriously from an early age. I teach kids with the same discipline that I use in my adult classes. I want the children to have fun while learning skills they can take with them and use for a lifetime!
This class is for students who have completed the Beginner Class or already have comparable sewing experience.
1. Students will have to bring their own machines.
Simple projects and learning use of machine for beginners.
Help for intermediate sewers who want to try sewing more complicated items.
Beginners have learned how to:
-Thread sewing machine properly
-Wind thread on a bobbin
-Sew a straight, curved and pivot corners for squares or zigzags
-Sew a French seam
-Attach a zipper and button on the machine
-Read a store bought pattern
-Create a simple basic pillow or article of clothing
Each student must be prepared for lessons with the following:
-Sewing machine with a zipper and button foot
-Sewing machine bobbins

-Fabric pins and pin cushion or magnet
I've been sewing for 15+ years and have taken courses in Clothing Construction, but my skills aren't limited to clothes. We can start at the very beginning with basic stitches and seams or I can help you read and complete a pattern for a garment, accessory, or home decor item. I do have some fabric for beginners but if you have a pattern, please provide your fabric and the notions listed on the pattern. I can come to you or you can come to me (but I have 2 cats - in case you have allergies).
