Intro to Sewing class apron

 

LEVEL: Very Beginner
PREREQUISITE: None
KIT FEE: None
COST: $35
TIME: 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.


Interested in learning (or re-learning) how to sew? Join us in our Intro to Sewing class to learn the basics of sewing.

This class will go over getting comfortable at a sewing machine – it’s not as scary as it looks, we promise! – basic stitches and seams. You’ll also learn correct pressing and pinning techniques.

Kits are provided, which means everything you’ll need to create a skirt apron (pictured above) will be here waiting for you when you show up for class. Our sewing classroom is stocked with Baby Lock sewing machines, cutting mats, rotary cutters and irons to make this intro course fun and easy.

Why create a skirt apron?

We chose this project because the gingham (checkered) fabric gives you built-in guidelines in which to sew a straight seam. The apron project uses simple sewing techniques that you’ll be able to use and will build on for future projects.

How to Sign Up

Sign up by calling the store or by registering in-store. Intro to Sewing fills up quickly, so in order to guarantee your spot we require payment at the time of registration.

Note: Our store is a FRAGRANCE-FREE zone. Please be courteous of other students and staff when attending class and do not use fragrances. Thank you!
