It is a day-long retreat for beginner sewers. I say retreat, because we go all out: decor, fabulous food, party favors. It's a kid-free day to get your craft on.
WHERE IS THE CLASS?
My home in Arvada, Colorado.
Women who want to learn to sew. Or those who learned years ago and need a refresher.
WHAT EXACTLY DO WE LEARN?
Basic sewing terminology and skills. Basic operation of a sewing machine. How to follow a pattern, how to make a button hole....You will learn how to confidently run your sewing machine and you will complete three projects.
WHEN IS IT?
I am hoping to offer four classes in 2012.
January 28--already done
April 21--already done
October TBA (This will be a level 2 sewing course)
HOW MUCH IS IT?
WHAT DO I GET FOR MY $200?
You will walk away saying, "Why yes! I do sew." You will walk away with three completed projects, a binder with patterns and notes and the confidence to sew on your own. You will also get breakfast, snacks and a lunch, a day away with some other awesome women.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ATTENDING?
The class size is limited to eight attendees to allow for a one-on-one teaching and a very hands-on approach.
WHAT WILL WE MAKE?
A tote bag
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?
You will need to bring as sewing machine, fabric and some sewing tools. A supply list will be provided once you are registered.
DO I HAVE TO OWN A SEWING MACHINE?
No, you do not have to own a sewing machine to take this class. I can provide a machine for you, but one of the hugest benefits of this class is we will teach you how to thread your needle, wind your bobbin and make a button hole using your machine. You will go home confident in how to make that machine hum. You can purchase a reasonable, quality machine for $150-200. Inquire if you want suggestions.
I AM FROM OUT OF STATE, CAN I STILL COME?
Absolutely! I can even assist you in travel arrangements.
