Where to start when sewing - understanding different fabrics: characteristics, buying, cutting, how much to buy. Which needles, thread, stitches, foot pressure to use.
This class covers theory mostly but I suggest you bring your sewing machine, manual and any bits to apply and practice concepts discussed.
Skill level required: Completed 'Machine sewing skills' or 'Learn to sew' class or know how to use your sewing machine.
- Sewing machine, manual & any bits.
- Measuring tape.
- *Samples of any fabrics you might be planing to sew with.
- *Pictures/ photos of the kind of items you would like to make.
- Note book & pen.
*Bring photos/ pictures/ patterns along to save time and prevent misunderstanding so that you get the most out of the class. Samples - simply cut a 2 inch corner off the fabric to bring with.
