Introduction to Sewing

Denise is offering one hour private classes for beginners. During this hour, she will work directly with you and your machine (or ours if you don't have one!) in order to get you familiar with how to thread it, and how to use the basic functions. She will get you sewing on the machine and show you some of the basic techniques. After this initial one hour class, you will be ready to take the Guided Sewing class and Denise will work with you on a series of beginner projects that will help you build your skills and understanding of sewing and/or quilting.

Time:  Privately arranged with Denise

Cost:  $20 for one hour

Teacher:  Denise Slazas

Tuesdays & Wednesdays

Guided Sewing and Quilting

In this class we will help you through your project of choice. You can work through a different project each week, or focus on one project for multiple weeks. Bring a pattern you have already started and are having trouble with or come to the class without a pattern or fabric picked out and we will help you get started. This class can be used for both woven fabric and knit fabric projects, please let us know ahead of time if you wish to work on a project using knits. During class you will get help with your project, as well as hear the advice and help the others are getting. Brand new beginners are welcome! But, students should have a basic knowledge of how to use their machines (if you don't, we offer an introduction to sewing class).

Time: Tuesdays from 10 to 12:30, and Wednesdays from 12:30 to 2:30 pm

Cost: $25 per class

Materials Needed: Fabric, thread, your machine (or borrow one of ours), and the basic supplies you need for your machine. We will provide cutting mats for use during the class.

Teacher: Denise Slazas

*** Please sign up for this class three days in advance! We only run the class when we have students for it!***
