Event Overview











Whether you’re wanting to sew a pattern, upcycle or alter your wardrobe, make your own decor, or make your own collection, this is the place to start!


In this class, you’ll learn to use a sewing machine, basic stitches, and fundamental sewing techniques and finishes used in modern sewing and garment construction.


This is an instructional class where you’ll be walked through each techniques, step by step, as a small group, then you go back to your station and try them yourself! You’ll create a sample binder full of seam and technique samples to take with you with everything you’ve learned in it. That way, you can refer back to it when you’re working on a project and forget exactly what the difference between an "edge stitch" and "top stitch" is.


On the last day, we go over a commercial pattern and you start working on your own project!
