Beginning Sewing Part 1: Make Friends with Your Sewing Machine

 If you have never sewn, or sewn some but need a refresher, this class is a great place to begin! This foundational sewing class is a part-day introduction excerpt from our 3-day Learn to Sew course (also available online). 

What you will learn in this class:
~ How not to sew!
~ How to operate, control and care for the sewing machine
~ How to develop good sewing habits
~ Sewing straight lines and accurate seam allowances
~ You will sew a tissue holder and a throw pillow
~ Notions and supplies needed to set up sewing at home
~ Casings and hems and more

You will sew and take home a practice sampler, a purse-sized tissue holder, a throw pillow and the confidence that you really can sew! 

This is the first of four classes in our Beginning Sewing Series:
Beginning Sewing Part 2: Cutting Out and More 
Beginning Sewing Part 3: My First Tote Bag
Beginning Sewing Part 4: Easy Lined Apron

Taking these 4 classes will be a close equivalent to taking our 3-day Learn to Sew course. This course will give you a solid foundation in the basics of sewing that you will be able to build on whether you are interested in quiltmaking, sewing crafts or clothing.

We have available our full color Learn to Sew Book including instructions for making 12 beginner skill-building projects. All of the instructions for the projects that you will sew in this Beginning Sewing series are included in this book. Book is not included with the class, but we highly recommend one for each beginning seamstress.
