Want to know the basics of how to sew by hand? It’s easier than you think, and will unlock a world of possibilities!
In this one-day class, you’ll learn how to:
Thread a sewing needle, use a thimble, and about different types of thread and their uses, both historical and modern.
How to sew: backstitch, running backstitch, basting stitch, whip stitch and felling stitch, and buttonhole stitch, and when each of these methods is appropriate.
You’ll practice and complete a small sewing sampler using these skills.
We’ll also discuss fabric types and their uses, and how to tell the difference between them. A variety of fabrics will be available to feel and touch!
Materials (needles, a small number of thimbles to try out, thread, and fabric) will be provided.
Children welcome, but please only kids with age appropriate ability to manage a sharp needle, and parent supervision is required for kids under 14.
Cost: $18 per person. Scholarships available (please inquire). Refunds are only available if class is canceled.
