Each class has met together three times now, and we are all having a great time! Our fantastic students are learning sewing skills, and everyone is enjoying the process. We have made aprons and pillow shams, and the students have learned several basic skills. After getting to know their machines, they have learned some basic fabric properties and how to lay out and cut out a pattern; several ways to mark fabric; how to use a loop turner and how to topstitch properly; how to finish a seam with a “mock serge” three step process; how to make a buttonhole and how to sew on a button using the sewing machine. (Jenae was particularly excited about the button skill!)
These first two groups of students have been so much fun! We love seeing them excited about new skills, and we could not be more proud of them!
