Beginner (ages 12+) You’ve had some introductory sewing lessons either here, at school, online or from a more experienced sewer and would like to create items that you can actually wear or use! You have used a sewing machine before but need a refresher on threading the machine. You’re also unsure about the tension dial, what sewing tension is and you may need more practice keeping an even seam allowance. You have finished some projects. But you also have many unfinished projects due to just “winging it” or difficulty with understanding sewing patterns.
The Basic course is a set of six (6) classes designed to get you comfortable with the sewing machine and teach you pattern layout, cutting, essential construction skills and finishing techniques.
