What you'll learn in this sewing class:

There’s more to sewing than using a machine. In this course, you’ll learn over a dozen hand stitches and zipper attachment techniques, as well as button and other closure repair. These skills are not only valuable for day-to-day life, but can easily be applied to future careers in wardrobe. 

A complete resource guide is provided as part of the course. Bring to first session: 
  • 12-inch ruler
  • mechanical pencil or colored tailor's chalk
  • embroidery scissors
  • one yard of plain muslin
  • No. 7 Sharp hand sewing needles
  • and black all purpose 100 percent cotton thread. 
Additional supplies will be discussed at first class. Punctual arrival and full attendance is required due to the abundance of material covered. 

Note
