Sewing 101 - 4 weeks



Sewing basics will be discussed with a focus on proper technique and safety. Once you have the basics down, it’s time to explore and play with fabric! Beginning sewists will complete a beginner-friendly project each week. All students will complete a project in each class.





This is a 4-week program. Students are not required to take each class in order but beginners are encouraged to do so. Each class will build on previous classes and add new skills and techniques. There are four classes that build skills and teach new techniques each session.

  1. The first class will cover how to thread your machine, wind a bobbin, use different stitches, and use the foot pedal or start/stop button (if applicable). Students will leave with a finished pillowcase.
  2. The second class will cover fabric choices and directional prints, as well as piping and decorative stitches. Students will leave with a finished apron.
  3. The third class will cover machine quilting. Students will leave with a potholder.
  4. The fourth class will bring everything together and introduce zippers and French seams. Students will leave with a finished tote bag with a zipper pocket, piping, and stitched detail.
