About Your Host

I created You're Crafty! Craft and DIY classes because I love making things and I want you to love making things, too. I'm a lifelong crafter. My areas of specialty include knitting, crochet, sewing, cross stitch, and making costumes. I offer a variety of small, intimate classes for all experience and skill levels. You'll have fun and meet new friends while challenging yourself to learn something new. When I'm not making stuff or teaching others how to make stuff, I'm walking/running in the Berkeley hills (walking up the hills, running down them), snuggling with my cats, and performing with Bay Area Flash Mob (often as a zombie). See you in class! Let's craft together!

What we'll do

I supply the sewing machines, and I’ll teach you how to use them! In just one class, you’ll learn the basic sewing techniques to take on any easy sewing project, from threading a machine and winding a bobbin, to using a pattern, finding the grainline of fabric, and sewing different types of stitches. This class is perfect for you if you've never touched a sewing machine. It's also a great class if you'd like to practice or refresh your basic sewing skills. In this small class, you’ll get plenty of individual attention from me, your friendly and patient instructor. You’ll take home an envelope-style pillowcase that will brighten up any throw pillow. Price of class includes: * Pattern * Tutorial handout packet * 1 yard medium-weight woven cotton fabric * Matching thread * Use of sewing machine, scissors, pins, bobbin, cutting table, iron and ironing board, and other tools.
