Class levels are our suggestions, but some students are ready sooner than others to advance to higher level classes. If there is a class you want to take and you are unsure if it is beyond your skills, just ask! We love students who want to challenge themselves!
If you have never used a sewing machine before, or if you haven’t touched one since you were little, then you’re a newbie, this is where you’ll want to start. All newbies must take the intro to sewing course.
If you are fairly comfortable using a sewing machine, you understand and know how to use the basic parts of the machine, can thread a machine and wind a bobbin, adjust stitch length and width and have some basic sewing skills you are ready for courses at this level.
At this level you will build on your knowledge by experimenting with new fabrics and construction techniques.
These classes will dive more into pattern manipulation, fit and construction techniques. A thorough understanding of sewing construction and machine use is required.
