FASHION CREATED ON YOUR  OWN SEWING MACHINE

 

The aim of the course is to show ladies or gentlemen at beginner/intermediate level how to use their sewing machine to its full capacity, to be able to thread correctly, select the right needles for the fabrics that they choose, setting tension, use feet and needles with the stitches on their sewing machines to get maximum use and enjoyment using their sewing machine.

 

We will be taking a paper pattern of your choosing and going through the complete alteration process to make sure the garment fits before you sew. Then you will be making the garment and gaining an understanding of the construction process.

 

This workshop will help you acquire skills that you can use to create a new outfit for that special occasion, clothes for family members and children or even a whole new wardrobe.

Materials required for class

·         Paper pattern for a simple jacket with lining (as I would like to show you how to pad your jacket I will bring the right weight of wadding with me)

·         Fabric and lining as per pattern, thread to match, scissors.

·         Materials cost $20.  Please pay tutor on first day

I will have some marking pens and sewing aids with me to assist you. I will also have a limited amount for purchase.
