During this workshop, you will learn the basic principles of sewing and become familiar with a sewing machine. Even if you’ve never used a sewing machine before, we will take you through each step for you to become familiar with basic techniques. By the end of the class, you will have a finished project to show everyone! Each step of the process will be explained, then reinforced, starting with sewing a straight line, to slightly more advanced construction techniques. You only need to bring yourself. All supplies and equipment will be provided.
