What you'll learn in this beginner sewing class:

Women, men, teens....learn to sew!

In this project-based, two hour beginner sewing class, we'll teach you sewing basics (threading a machine, loading a bobbin, machine control, various machine stitches), even while making the trendiest item out there!

You'll make a zippered pouch which can be used as a fold-over clutch, a kindle/ipad/device cover or a stand alone cosmetic case. You'll be proud to carry (and show-off) your custom pouch. And, don't worry, you'll receive careful explanations and step-by-step instructions to assemble your project - all in just two hours. This is a perfect workshop to use as a stepping stone for one of our longer class offerings.

Course Outline:
  • Basic sewing-machine operation
  • Tools and terminology
  • Stitches: regular stitch, topstitch
  • Zipper insertion
  • Finishing and pressing
Zipper pouch (can be used as Fold over Clutch or Cosmetic Case or Device Sleeve)

This beginner sewing workshop was great. I've learned quite a few things that I did not know before. Daniel is a great teacher. I got a few yellings from him but all for good reasons (you are supposed to lower the machine foot gently!). We all finished our zippered bags by the end of class. This is a great sewing class for beginners. I definitely recommend it.
