Eight-Week Class | Sewing Fundamentals

No class on Monday, September 2.

This class is designed for those new to sewing, those who haven’t sewn in a while, those afraid of their machines, those who want to build a stronger sewing foundation or those needing a refresher on the basics of machine sewing. Instructor and artist Amber Layne created a curriculum that is comprehensive and empowering for students. Using project-based learning, this class teaches how needles, threads, fabrics, stitches and your sewing machine work together as a team. Gain in-depth knowledge about your sewing machine while mastering the fundamentals of sewing through fun and useful projects.

• An instructor-provided materials kit ($55) must be purchased on the first day.

• Students must provide their own working, preferably recently serviced, sewing machine to each meeting.

• If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can rent one through Studio School. Daily rentals are $15. Four-week rentals are $60 and eight-week rentals are $110.

• If one class is postponed due to weather or unforeseen instructor circumstances, the rain date is September 9.
