Learn to Sew using Patterns! This class teaches students how to read and sew from patterns using sewing machines.
If you are like me, you watched your mother/grandmother speeding away on a sewing machine, patterns cut out and duplicated on brown paper bags, being tucked and pinned into unfinished shirts, dressed and pants. Despite being around all this kitchen table sewing, I really am a novice. While I know my way around a sewing machine (sort of – I know where the thread goes, and the fabric goes under the needle, and you push the pedal to make it go) I never learned to read or sew from patterns! And I am so incredibly excited to learn!
In Lean to Sew using Patterns, all students will be working from the same pattern, a “Kwick Sew” Apron pattern, which will be provided. Students should come with 2 yards of medium to heavy weight woven fabric (demin, twill, cotton canvas). Additionally students should come with fabric shears, straight pins, 2, 1″ D rings and matching or coordinating thread.
This course will have sewing machines available for in-class use, however should you have your own portable machine feel free to bring it along.
This course takes place on two Tuesday evenings, Sept 29th and Oct 6th, 6-8pm and will be held in The Colony Room inside The Hive at 25 Roxbury Street in Keene, NH.
