IT'S BACK TO SCHOOL FOR YOU!



BACK TO SCHOOL ONE AND ALL

MAKE IT SEW

Love to sew - except when your machine is acting up? Never know if you’re dealing with a machine hobgoblin or operator error? Learn sewing machine troubleshooting, basic maintenance, and how to get the most from your sewing machine. Top and bottom tension issues, needle choices and stitch configuration will be among the issues addressed.

Skill Level: All
Fee: $35
Instructor: Michele Hoaglund

Thursday 6:00 – 9:00 September 7

SERGER CLUB

Did you make it through Basic and Beyond, and now you’d like to know more? Come to Serger Club and explore a range of topics - a new one each month! Each meeting will end with a Q & A - bring your current projects with serger application questions!  There may be a small fee for supplies that are provided in class.

Bring your serger-this is a hands-on class.

Skill Level: All
Fee: $20 per session

September: What the Pattern Instructions Don’t Tell You

FULL BUST ADJUSTMENT

Do you struggle with wrinkles and drag lines around the bust? Do your shirt hemlines sit unevenly? Do you often feel there is way too much fabric in the upper chest? The Full Bust Adjustment can be right for any size body; if the difference between your full bust measure and your high bust measure is 3” or more – it’s probably for you! In this class, we will modify patterns and make mock-ups to test the fit. Choose a basic darted or princess-seamed bodice (suggestions given in supply list) and learn how to fine-tune the bust fit!

Skill level: Advanced Beginner
Fee: $55
Instructor: Elizabeth Merritt

Wednesday 6:30 – 9:30 September 13, 20



SEWING SALON

Need a little extra help with your sewing, but not enough to take a full class? This 2-hour block of time is a flexible mini-workshop on the project or technique of your choice. You probably won’t complete a whole project, but we’ll help you through the tricky bits!

Skill Level: All
Fee: $25 each
Instructor: Elizabeth Merritt

Thursday 6:30 – 8:30 September 14

 

NO-ZIP SKINNY JEANS

A breeze to sew and wear, skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple. Make yours from stretch denim/twill or ponte. We’ll work on fit - without a zipper, the techniques are pretty easy.
