Intro to Sewing Project with Christina



What You Will Learn:

This 8 week, hands-on class will help you get in gear and teach you all you ever needed to begin sewing! Topics will cover assembling a basic sewing kit (and why quality matters); sewing safety; sewing terminology; how to select fabrics, thread and needles; understanding the parts of your sewing machine and how they work; machine maintenance; measuring to fit a pattern; how to layout a pattern; fabric care; following pattern instructions to construct an apron; machine techniques; and hand sewing basics (mending, hems, and buttons).

PLEASE ensure your 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 quantity will be determined once you are measured and can be purchased at Berger’s – it’s part of the planning experience! Please do not buy generic items without first understanding the 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!
