What do you want to sew? How do you decide if it will work? What challenge do you have? The pattern instructions read like Latin; you like this bodice, but that skirt; you just can't get that technique. Whether you are relatively new to sewing, coming back to it after time away, or an avid fan who wants to stretch your skills, this is the place. Learn tips, tricks, and techniques to improve your sewing skills so you can sew for the fun of it. Construct a garment of your choice, keeping in mind that you want to challenge yourself, but not cry. Class will include technique demonstration as well as individual sewing time; some sewing outside of class may be required depending on complexity of project chosen.
