Course Overview 

In a supportive and relaxed environment, students will be introduced to basic hand and machine sewing techniques while making a series of fun and functional projects. Working with both commercial and recycled materials, students will learn sewing construction and embellishment, ultimately incorporating elements of their own designs. Whether the goal is sewing for your home, making clothing, quilting, or other projects, this class will give you the foundation to get started off on the right foot!

Students who have their own sewing machines to learn on are encouraged to bring them to class. A few machines will be made available in the studio for those who do not have their own.
