sewing 101: learn to sew!

In this 2-1/2 hour workshop you will learn all the basics of the timeless craft of sewing.  We'll start with a lesson on all the necessary sewing tools and a general overview of fabric types and sewing terms.  Then you'll learn how to wind a bobbin, thread a machine, and sew several types of stitches.  Finally, you'll put your new skills to use and make a drawstring bag!

This class is perfect for anyone who has little to no sewing experience as well as those who have not sewn for years and need a good refresher.

Students will need to provide the following materials:

- "It's a Cinch"  Pattern 

 - (2) coordinating fabrics for the drawstring bag (one for outside of bag, one for lining).  Each needs to be at least 18" x 22" (fat quarters work great).

 - (1) spool of coordinating thread (100% cotton)

Please arrive on time for class with your materials.  If shopping for materials on the day of class, please arrive at least 30 minutes early.

We have modified our classes to comply with the CDC guidelines and NJ Executive Order 152. Classes will be limited in size, each students station will be at least 6 feet away from the other and whilst they are able to maintain social distancing students are not required to wear a mask, however where social distancing cannot be maintained (e.g. moving around the classroom) masks will be required, so please ensure you bring one. The instructor will be wearing one. For the purposes of Beginner sewing classes only, tools will be sanitized in between classes, however, if a student does wish to continue with other classes, students will be required to provide their own tools as identified within the relevant class description.
