We're so happy to be back...but due to ongoing covid mandates, all of our classes this semester will be Virtual!
Beginner Sewing - Virtual!
Have you been toying with the idea of actually learning how to sew? You can do this! One step at a time! Lynn will start with the basics...the terminology, the tools, how to pin, how to cut, how to sew a straight line and more. Then you’ll progress to the real deal and sew a pillowcase! And you can make one for everyone in your family!!! And then you’ll learn a few more skills with a cute little zippy purse. And by that time, you’ll have the beginning basics, and can go onto specific project-oriented classes. Note...consider following these classes with our Pajama Bottoms class below! Sewing machine required and you MUST know how to thread it and wind and load a bobbin! Ages 14 and over! Pattern purchase required.
$110 (Includes all kit fees!)
Tuesdays - 4/27, 5/4, 5/11, 5/18 - 10-12 noon - Virtual!
Pajama Bottoms - Virtual!
Who can’t use more of these comfy pajama bottoms for lounging or sleeping??? Lynn will walk you through all of the basics from reading a pattern to pinning it onto your fabric and going on from there. You can make a pair for every day of the week (whoops! That’s may-be something else!) Or you can make jammies for your whole family...to match their pillowcases!!! Pattern purchase required.
Tuesday - 6/22 - 10-1pm - Virtual!
Pockets, Pockets, Pockets! - Virtual
Are you continually frustrated by not having a pocket when you need one??? Why do men’s clothes ALWAYS have pockets and ours don’t??? Now you can add pockets to an existing pair of pants or a skirt, or to a pattern that doesn’t have one. You will learn how to put a side seam pocket into a garment whether it is premade or yet to be made (as in the PJ Pants you may have signed up to make next week!) Lynn will also show how to extend the depth of a pocket in a pair of pants that has a pocket, but it is not deep enough to hold a cell phone, for instance. Don't you hate how they make them so shallow nowadays, as if they are just for show? Additionally, she will show you tips and tricks for patch pockets to make them look professionally done.
Tuesday - 6/8 - 10-12 noon
Sashiko Bag - Virtual
We’ll be making this adorable clutch even more impressive with sashiko stitching! Us- ing your Luminaire or Solaris, this stunning decorative stitching has become another tool in your toolbox, and we think you’ll find all kinds of wonderful ways to use it! So, jump onto this virtual class with Jess and find out just how easy...and impressive...this stitching can be! For Solaris and Luminaire owners only!
Thursday - 6/3 - 1-4pm
