Sewing for Beginners

ARTCRAFT 1087, Course Code: 11442

Make sewing easy in this introductory class. Start with the basics: fabric, supplies and pattern selection. Learn how to read a pattern, straighten the fabric grainline and the importance of accurate measurements. Then practice your new skills by completing a project designed for the novice. By the end of class, you'll know basic sewing and finishing techniques you can apply to any simple sewing project. Note: for this class, you need to bring your own sewing machine (in good working condition), manual and attachments.

Course Fee:
$69.00, plus $15-20 materials fee

The first class meeting will be held at Hancock Fabrics. During the first class you will be given a list of basic sewing supplies. You will be making a tote bag, which is a good beginning project. All you need for the first night of class is something on which to take notes. You will cut out your pattern during the second class. REMEMBER: THE FIRST CLASS WILL MEET AT HANCOCK FABRICS.
