Have you always wanted to learn how to sew but afraid to touch a sewing machine? Or wonder why your hungry sewing machine keeps eating your projects and jamming? Let me help you get started and make you feel comfortable using a sewing machine while teaching you the basics! In this class you will be making a 16" pillow cover with a zipper!! Workshop Schedule: Meets for 3 consecutive Wednesdays - November 9, 16 & 30 from 6:15-9:15pm Cost: $144 Prerequisite: This is a complete beginners class - no prior experience is required! You do not need to own a sewing machine to take this class! Minimum Age: 18 Trixy Xchange will Provide: Expert instructions, sewing machines, cutting tables, basic notions, basic tools, and fabric for mock-ups. Participants Must Bring: One yard of fabric of choice for a pillow, matching accessories as needed (zipper, thread, etc.). Participants may bring their own sewing machines and/or sewing supplies. PLEASE NOTE THAT NONE OF THESE ITEMS ARE NECESSARY FOR THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS! JUST BRING YOURSELF! Participants May Purchase: Fabric and zippers from Trixy Xchange for a small fee if they decide to not purchase it on their own Sewing is a learning-by-doing type of activity, and each day of this three part series will build on each other. By the end of this series you will be comfortable using a sewing machine, be able to choose the appropriate techniques and materials for a project, and will know how to manipulate fabric into fun and/or practical item for personal use. You can say I made it every day of the week! We will explore and create: Parts of the sewing machine including various stitches, accompanying pressure and tension, and how to change your presser foot How to thread your sewing machine and wind your bobbin Seam allowances Seam finishes and hems Sewing and drafting darts with transfer paper and a tracing wheel Installing zippers How to layout and cut your fabric with a pattern How to pin your pattern and fabric together correctly Intro to reading commercial patterns By the end of class, not only will you have a cute pillow cover to take home with you that you made yourself, but you will know some sewing basics that you can start your own projects with!!
