Our latest 101 classes were fun and productive! Students learned the basics of the sewing machine and sewing tools, the characteristics of fabric and how to prepare it for cutting out a pattern, and many other useful lessons. With several projects, they learned many useful sewing techniques such as installing zippers, creating buttonholes, topstitching, finishing seams, forming hems, and creating a casing to insert elastic.
Several of these students have joined us for Beginning Sewing 102, where we are making a lined tote bag and beautiful lined duffle bag, and a cozy zippered hoodie.
