Sewing 101

This class will help you master the basics of sewing. Stop spending money having trousers taken up or leaving clothes at the back of the wardrobe because you can’t repair small tears or hems. This course will teach you the hand-stitch basics that you need and, if you have a machine gathering dust in the corner, bring it along too and Shauna will help you learn the basic skills that will keep your wardrobe going for years to come.  This introduction to sewing will look at the tools of the trade, basic stitches, and understanding the language of sewing. You will learn about the importance of the cut and construction of clothes and how to mend and alter the clothes you love to get the perfect fit. You will also learn how to make and read patterns. Bring along your own machine or learn how to do it the old-fashioned way, by hand.
