Description
This class is intended for the complete novice sewer, or the sewer who has never had any formal training in the art of sewing or use of sewing materials. We will cover basic materials including fabrics, needles, thimble, thread, wax, and buttons. Techniques covered will include the basic use of these materials, running stitch, two stitches to finish a raw edge (whip stitch and blanket or button-hole stitch), sewing on a button, and mending a tear. The intention of this curriculum is to provide the student with the basic skills required to sew two pieces of fabric together, sew on basic fasteners to hold a garment together, and make needed repairs to garb.
