Intro to Sewing Boot Camp

Skill Level: Beginner; ages 13 - 99

What you will learn:

This 10-hour class will get the younger student familiar with their sewing machine while making a cross-body messenger bag. If time allows, we can also make hair scrunchies. An adult family member must accompany the student, and be willing to learn along with the student while providing safety checks and support with math calculations, equipment and tools. This class is a precursor to the 8-week “Intro to Sewing” course that we offer throughout the year. Only BASIC skills will be covered, which include the following topics: assembling a basic sewing kit; sewing safety; sewing terminology; understanding fabric, thread and needles; understanding the parts of your sewing machine; machine care and basic use techniques; and basic construction techniques. 

PLEASE ensure your full-sized sewing machine is in good working order PRIOR to the first day of class. See the attached Class Supply List – Berger’s has all items available. Fabric can be purchased the first day of class, as well as needed tools and notions.
