Welcome to the world of sewing.
No matter your skill we have a class that will fit you just FAB.
These are skill levels for our adult classes only.
Find YOUR perfect fit:
Learning to Sew: You wish you knew how to sew. Maybe you have a sewing machine in a box in a closet somewhere, or you have never really touched one or it been years since your home economics class. You are a little nervous to try on your own but are willing to give it a shot in a class.
Beginner: You can sew in a straight line most of the time. You’ve taken a class or two and are starting to feel comfortable with the machine — you know what seam allowance is, maybe you’ve sewn a little on your own, but you still need a little help with remembering how to thread the machine and wind a bobbin. The prerequisite for any Beginner class is a Sewing 101 class or equivalent. This level is not for people who have never used a sewing machine before.
Advanced Beginner. You feel comfortable with the basics and are ready to try more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help manipulating the patterns to fit your body. You want to add some new skills into the mix; like zippers, finish and detail work.
Intermediate: You’re comfortable reading a pattern and have made a few garments you like. You would like to learn different methods of zipper installation or how to alter your patterns. You’re venturing into more complicated patterns; like lined garments, collars, zippered fly. These classes move a little faster.
Advanced: You use a pattern as the starting point, and build your our style from there. You want to learn to draft patterns and do more complicated alterations and detailed work. You see sewing as a passion and love a good challenge.
