This series is designed to introduce you to the basics of sewing! Created with the absolute beginner in mind, Beginning Sewing will provide an introduction for students to a wide range of sewing skills. Each of the 4 projects will focus on a certain sewing skill: using a pattern, making ruffles, installing a zipper, quilting, binding, using interfacing. This basics class will help you develop a solid foundation to move onto future sewing projects with confidence.

  • Drawstring bag: Casing, tracing a pattern, using a pattern piece, making straps

  • Folded box: Using interfacing, boxing corners, turning fabric, topstitching

  • Sewing organizer: Quilting skills – quilting, binding

  • Ruffle Zipper bag: Ruffle – multiple ways to make ruffles (tools, basting, pleating tool, sewing machine feet); installing a zipper, installing a lining, finishing seams.   

  • 8 fat quarters – if you do not choose 8 that all coordinate together you will want 4 pairs of coordinating fat quarters.
