Bring your sewing project and work on it in the company of other sewists. We will help you with pattern and fabric choice, fit issues and construction techniques. This class is meant to add a social component to a solitary endeavor and is priced accordingly. This is also a great place for you to take what you learned in Basic Sergery and apply it as you complete a garment (when to use the serger and when to use your sewing machine). If you feel your skill level needs more time and attention, please sign up for Beginning Sewing or Basic Sergery. Come as often as you like - let’s get to know each other and get things done!
