Sewing School

Please join me once a week for some skill-building, adult conversation and fun!  This six week program is designed for sewers with a little experience who would like to feel more confident sewing garments and working with commercial sewing patterns.

Students will learn how to read a commercial pattern and follow pattern instructions, make simple pattern alterations, learn the proper method used to layout, pin, cut and mark fabric, and learn some basic garment construction techniques.

Students can either purchase patterns and fabric here at the studio or bring in their own project to work on.  This program is self-paced and students can join at any time.
