Beginning Sewing, 4-12, 1:00
A desire to learn to sew!
1) A working sewing Machine with the user guide
if you can’t find the user guide, you should be able to look it up online and print it out
if you aren’t sure if your machine is in working order, I’m happy to meet ahead of time to practice some sewing on it and ensure that your students won’t have any delays due to their machine. Text me at 863.370.1578 to set it up
If you want to get your machine serviced, I recommend Sewingly Yours or Triad Sew & Vac.
2) Sewing Tools: fabric scissors, fabric pins, seam ripper, hem gauge
3) Project specific materials listed in the description
It’s helpful to have a rolling tote, but not required. Office Depot has a basic rolling tote that will work or you can spend a little bit more on sewing tote at Wal-Mart/Hobby Lobby/ Joanns
This is a class for students who have never used a sewing machine or for those who have, but still need assistance. In this class we’re going to get to know our machines, how to thread them (bobbin and all) as well as the different types of stitches. We will learn how to sew a straight line, curved lines and corners so they can approach their projects with confidence. My goal, above completing projects, is to ensure that they have the confidence to take their machines home and sew new projects!! Here are the projects we’re going to work on and the materials they will need for them:
Project #1 – Scrunchies (Fat quarter or ¼ yard of cotton fabric, coordinating thread)
Project #2 – Tote (1 yard of 100% cotton fabric, coordinating heavy duty thread)
Project #3 – Chapstick Keychain (Fat quarter or ¼ yard of cotton fabric, keyring, coordinating thread)
Projects are able to be repeated and additional projects will be available should we have extra time.
