Sewing 101 // 4 weeks // Starts Feb 7, Mar 2, Mar 3 or Mar 5

When in doubt, start at the very beginning. This course is designed to give novice stitchers a comprehensive foundation in machine sewing. Students will make a lined, zippered fold-over clutch or laptop bag, and will graduate with the confidence to begin tackling anything.

Skills learned:

- Textile selection
- Pattern layout, grainlines, and cutting techniques
- Seaming and topstitching
- Fusing interfacing
- Incorporating a lining
- Attaching a patch pocket
- Installing a zipper
- Attaching hardware (snaps, D-rings)

Skill Level: Novice. No experience needed.
