Sew Helpful Sessions
- Advanced Beginner
Do you need help with a particular sewing problem? Perhaps you need help inserting sleeves, inserting an invisible zipper, sewing buttonholes or just want some guidance understanding pattern instructions as you sew a particular pattern. Durning sew helpful sessions an instructor is available to assist up to 6 people with any kind of sewing issue or question as you work on your project. We provide sewing machines, but if you'd like to bring your own, you're welcome to! It's a great time to get help learning on your own machine. Please send an email to email@example.com and let us know what you plan to bring to work on during your scheduled session!
Starting in April our sew helpful sessions will have a particular topic for each session. In a small group (no more than 6 people), we'll focus on topics that are often challenging such as inserting zippers and fitting pants. Below are the dates with their corresponding topics.
4/11 - Copy Your Clothes - An instructor will demonstrate how to create a pattern from a favorite garment (for the sake of time, please bring a simple garment... nothing too complicated for this short session!)
4/25 - Inserting Zippers - An instructor will show students how to insert invisible, lapped and exposed zippers.
5/9 - Pants Fitting - An instructor will give helpful instruction, tips and tricks on fitting pants.
5/23 - Hems and Seams - An instructor will cover a few of the most common seam finishes and hemming techniques.
