Think of your sewing as both learning how to drive and a choose your own adventure.
First, you have driving lessons. You begin by learning how to operate your machine and how to navigate making seams. After that, comes the behind-the-wheel lessons to become familiar with your area. Next, once you become comfortable, familiar with the area, and successfully navigate the terrain you are ready for bigger journeys. Finally, you have reached the point in your sewing journey to choose your own adventure, aka a road trip, you are selecting a sewing project or pattern.
You are starting at point A and need to get to your ending point B. Seems simple, right? It can be! You just have to plan out all of the little, mini stops you will have along the way. Sometimes you will need to take a detour, wait out the weather, or even just take a day to really take everything around you in.
Let’s see what stage of the journey you’re at with some quick details of our classes.
For those who are just at the beginning of their journey with a road map in mind, but unsure how to get to each destination, opt for the Introductory/Beginner Course to Sewing Also known as those with little or no sewing experience. This can be for anyone who has taken a sewing hiatus for a few years to someone with absolutely no sewing background who wants to learn the basics. We believe that anyone can learn how to sew, it just takes practice - you simply need to start somewhere!
When you’re on the path of your sewing road trip journey, you might find that there are more detours and construction in your way than just green flag racing on the freeway. If you are feeling like you have the basic understanding of where you’re going, but find it hard to get creative with the ride, you should consider my Sewing with Mentoring options. This takes you off the freeways and onto the scenic route of sewing. Ultimately helping you learn more creative, freeing ways to enjoy sewing and the end project.
