Class description: This class is perfect for total beginners or those needing a brush-up. First, we'll go over the attachments and tools used in sewing, how to sew a straight seam, backstitch and turn corners, and machine tension and troubleshooting. From there you'll go on to take your measurements and purchase fabric and a pattern. Then you'll cut, construct and alter a simple skirt or pair of pants, install a zipper and create a rolled hem. You'll leave with a completed garment and the skills to make more!
