Whether you're a total newbie or you need a refresher, this quick 5 week course will provide a strong foundation to develop your skills. Our method of teaching focuses on understanding how a sewing machine actually functions and therefore eliminates frustration when problems occur. Though we will complete a very basic sewing project, the main objective is to demystify the sewing machine, grasp basic sewing concepts, and begin to create good, systematic behaviors so that sewing becomes "second nature."
