Intro to Sewing Boot Camp



Class is
- August 8-12 
Each session is from 2pm to 5pm




What You Will Learn:

This Bootcamp will help you get in gear and teach you all you ever needed to know about sewing and how to use and care for your sewing machine. Topics will cover assembling a basic sewing kit; how to select fabrics, thread and needles; understanding the parts of your sewing machine; machine maintenance; measuring to fit a pattern; how to layout a pattern; fabric care; following a pattern to construct an apron; machine techniques; sewing terminology; and hand sewing basics (mending, hems, and buttons).

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR MACHINE IS IN WORKING ORDER PRIOR to the first day of class. Bring your machine in to the store for a tune up if you are not sure how long it has been since it was used. Allow 1-2 weeks for servicing (times may vary). Be sure you have an owner’s manual – they can be downloaded for your specific model if you can’t locate one.

Needed supplies can be purchased at Berger’s. Please ask if you need assistance – do not buy generic items without understanding purpose of their use. Poor quality supplies and tools will be frustrating to work with and you will get discouraged from sewing. Good quality supplies and tools will make sewing easy, productive, and FUN!
