Learn all the basics of sewing with jersey, stretch & knit fabrics in SIX (super fun) weeks!

Students will focus on learning basic sewing skills using stretch knits. Everybody loves to wear knits because of the comfort they bring. Did you know that sewing knits really isn’t as hard as everyone seems to think. We’ve designed a 15 hour sewing class

This is a sewing course is designed for the sewing student who’s had some basic experience. The course is 15 hours in total divided up between 6 weekly classes.

Each class is project oriented and each student will leave classes with their finished wearable projects.
