Workshops

PLEASE NOTE:  Sew Crafty prefers to provide the sewing machines for the beginner classes as we have chosen very user-friendly machines that are in good working order.  If you have a machine of your own that you wish to become familiar with we can help you with that BEFORE the scheduled workshop starting time for an additional fee of $10.

During the months of June, July and August I’m only offering the Beginner’s #1 Workshop once a week because Summer Sewing Camp is being held during these months and I have limited time and energy for evening workshops.     Occasional private lessons can be scheduled on weekdays beginning at 5:30PM or later, so email sewcraftytoni@gmail.com to schedule one if you like.

DESCRIPTION OF WORKSHOPS OFFERED:

 

bgnrPillowsBEGINNER’S SEWING #1 Pillow

                                        ($35, 2 hr)

You will learn the basic functionality of a sewing machine and how to maintain a straight seam line. This class is perfect for people who have never used a sewing machine and those who have had a little bit of experience a long time ago and need a refresher course.   Use of our machines is included in the fee if you do not have a machine.   The project you will make is the Beginner’s Pillow as pictured 

Tote BagsBEGINNER’S SEWING #2-TOTE BAGS         ($35, 2  Hrs.)

This is the perfect second class to take after taking the Beginner’s #1-Pillow class.   Choose from our selection of colorful pre-cut fabrics. Beginners Sewing #1 is a pre-requisite UNLESS you already have basic sewing skills.  In this class you will learn how to “top stitch” in a straight line, how to make handle straps, a patch pocket and a box corner.  You will leave with an adorable and useful tote bag that you made yourself!

IMG_0112ZIPPERED  POUCH             ($35, 2 hours)

These zippered pouches are SO easy to make you won’t even believe it!!!  Definitely easy enough for a beginner who has taken the Beginner’s Workshops #1 and #2.  These zippered pouches make a really great gift because you can put additional gifts inside of it, like jewelry, special soaps, lotions, candles or gift cards – anything, actually, that will fit in it!

QUILTED POTHOLDER  ($35, 2 hours)

Sew 3″ squares together to create a “9 patch”  quilt block and then layer it up with batting and a piece of fabric on the back . Then, you’ll “stitch in the ditch” to quilt it all together and to finish it off you will add binding all around the edges.  A great way to get started on some of the standard techniques used to make a quilt – the potholder is kind of like a mini-quilt!

 

 HOW TO HEM PANTS   ($30, 1.5 hours)       

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to hem your own pants, or your kid’s pants?  Well, if you BRING A PAIR OF PANTS in that need to be hemmed  you will learn how to do it and you’ll actually get your pants hemmed during the class!  It’s VERY easy – perfect for beginner’s who know the basics of using a sewing machine.  If you bring in SLACKS that have a lining – that’s a slightly different and longer process and you will be charged an extra $10.
