Class Experience

Students will learn sewing fundamentals, some intermediate techniques, and basic design skills while developing their first-ever 5 piece mini-collection. They will learn about their sewing machine, how to measure the body and make size decisions based on the measurements.  Students will get a basic understanding of fractions for seam construction. 

Students will learn how to put together a cohesive collection together using inspiration, color combinations, and trim options.
