* 4 classes (2.5 hrs each) * $250 + HST * 10 hours total * Level 2 (must have completed 1 garment sewing course or equivalent, and be comfortable using commercial patterns) Already know how to sew with commercial patterns but want to try something new with an instructor by your side? Join us for sewing guidance, tips, and weekly demonstrations to improve your sewing technique. We'll help you purchase the right supplies, show you how to adjust your pattern for a better fit, and guide you through the garment construction process. Happy sewing! Demonstrations: Week 1 - introduction, adjusting your pattern for fit, shortening a zipper Week 2 - hand sewn backstitch Week 3 - bias tape Week 4 - horsehair braid NOTE: Supplies not included. Here's a list of the items you will need: - sewing machine - iron and ironing board - basic sewing kit (see below for a list of items) - commercial pattern - fabric for your project - any notions required for your garment Sewing Kit: - a spool of thread (we love 100% polyester, all purpose thread) - pins - pin cushion (or container) - fabric scissors - flexible measuring tape - sewing gauge - seam ripper - tailor's chalk - tracing wheel - tracing/transfer paper - hand-sewing needles There will be fun homework in this course (purchasing fabric for your project, washing it, cutting it out) but this takes time. Please be prepared to do your homework outside of class. NOTE: You will not need any project supplies for the first class, and we will provide many tips on selecting patterns and fabric in Week 1, so it is advised to wait to purchase your project supplies until after the first class.
