FOUNDATIONAL SEWING (For advancing beginners)

This course is for experienced beginners who have conquered the basic techniques of sewing—confident in your ability to make a simple project with little to no supervision and is now ready to advance those core skills.

If you have completed our Introduction to Sewing for beginners sessions 1 and 2, or have been sewing for a while and can sew straight and curved seams, keep a consistent seam allowance; thread your own machine, wind a bobbin and trouble shoot machine issues; and have completed several simple projects (pillow, skirt, pjs), then this class is for you.

In this study, students are introduced to more complex and advanced techniques relevant to garment construction; sewing patterns—reading, cutting and marking, types of seams, garment fullness, sleeves and zippers, closures, edge finishing and embellishments.
