garment skills: hemming techniques masterclass

Want to learn how to hem your garments? Join our super talented instructor Erin for the next garment sewing masterclass - hemming! 

During class students will learn a wide array of hemming techniques that you can use to hem your pants, shorts, skirts or even curtains.

The hem finishes off the bottom edge of any sewn item; the choice depends on both the weight or the fabric and the style of the garment. Although the construction of a hem is very simple, there are many different ways of achieving a neat result.

During class students will learn how to sew the following hemming techniques:
- Double- and single-fold hem

- Narrow hem, with and without a rolled hem foot
- Bias faced hem
- Seam tape hem
- Blind hem
- Hand stitched slip stitch hem

This class is perfect for students who have completed our garment sewing 101 program or can confidently use a sewing machine independently.
