Event Overview

Learn some very basic alterations, including hemming a skirt or dress pants, hemming jeans, and shortening cuffs on a dress shirt or blouse!

We'll look into two ways to shorten the hems on jeans, how to properly hem a skirt or dress pants with a blind hem, how to add length to a skirt, and how to shorten cuffs on a dress shirt.

Note: This class reviews techniques and application, but we do not sew items in class. You will receive a class overview after class with complete techniques for reference.

    I always learn something in my Dabble sewing classes. The instructor was very knowledgeable and answered a lot of my questions about the projects I have worked on. She also gave me advice on techniques and tools that would make my projects turn out better.

    The title of this class says it all, "Simple Hemming ." Don't know what it is about Tish (Instructor.) When she explains the techniques, I just get it. That says a lot because sometimes I just can't visualize some things, you know? For example, I have watched 998 YouTube videos on Binding & Piping; Brain:Jelly. So I took the HISS class...on Binding & Piping. I was so... happy, energetic, just giddy & felt so accomplished (Yes, sewing makes me this emotional!) Love HISS!
