Slow Stitch: Hand Sewing Basics

Level: Beginner

It all begins with a single stitch.  And long before there were machines to assist, our hands did all the work!  The workshop covers the most valuable and most basic techniques of sewing.  Students will learn 5 to 6 fundamental stitches, how to securely sew on a button and snap, seams and edge finishing, various decorative stitches, and what are the best tools for the job.

With these basic skills you will be free to sew and mend anywhere life takes you!


Sew Much More! Pattern Sewing

Level: Beginner Plus - basic sewing skills and machine knowledge

We learn so much just by "doing".  This workshop is designed to guide you through all the steps and instructions of a written pattern.   You may already have a pattern you want to make or you may be looking for ideas of where to start.  We can help.   Instruction is  geared towards students who know their way around the sewing machine and the basics (preparing fabric, pinning, cutting, seam allowance).  

Bring with you, your washed fabric, thread, and your complete pattern.  We have machines for you to use if you do not wish to carry in yours.

Please Note:  Most patterns take more than 2 hours to work through to completion.  One session will certainly get you on your way.  You may wish to sign up for additional time as needed.

How do we achieve sustainability?  Where does one person even start to make a difference?  With this new class we aim to teach students how to begin to make their own wardrobe a sustainable one. Students will bring in garments they no longer wear or do not like the way it fits and together we will come up with creative ways to up-scale, revamp, repurpose it.  Let’s all work to keep clothes out of the land- fill!
