Absolute Beginner

Confident Beginner

Advanced Beginner

For those who have never touched a sewing machine, but are eager to learn, there is the two-part beginner sewing course.  In part one you will learn all you need to get started: how to operate a sewing machine; common sewing terms & definitions; choosing the right supplies for your project; and so much more!  Everything you learn in part one will prep you for part two where you will make your own pillowcase! In part two you will sew a straight seam, and even learn how to sew a french seam!
The confident beginner is someone who is comfortable operating a sewing machine, and can sew a straight seam; you are comfortable using measuring, marking, and cutting tools; and have a  knowledge and undertanding  of common sewing terms.  You've got all the basics down, and are ready to expand your skillset!  Classes for the confident beginner include learning to sew one of the following: tote bag, throw pillow cover, basic curtains, or a hooded towel for babies & kids.
Classes for the advanced beginner and up are appropriate when you've mastered all the basic sewing skills, and know how to sew more than a few basic starter projects (pillowcase, tote bag, etc.)  You may already be an advanced seamstress, or want to be on your way to becoming one!  Classes for the advanced beginner and up include: learning alterations/repairs, sewing from a pattern (including sewing curved seams) or even learning how to draft and sew  your own patterns for garment construction.
