Sewing for Beginners
ARTCRAFT 1087, Course Code: 11442Make 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.
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.
