*Adults only, please.


School of Sewing will guide you step-by-step through the basics of machine sewing as you develop skills and complete four useful and beautiful projects. You will learn how to thread a machine and bobbin, how to choose appropriate fabrics for projects, what sewing tools are a necessity, and how to use them. We will work together on cutting and stitching one project during each session (pillowcase, drawstring bag, zipper pouch, and tote bag or apron--your choice! You are welcome to bring your own sewing machine (as long as it is in working order) or you can use the machines in our workshop. You will also have access to the workshop at Home Ec between class sessions to make progress and finish up projects at your own pace! This class is perfect for complete beginners and those who want to improve their skills and build up confidence in sewing.

*You may need to work outside of class to complete all four projects*
