It's official -- I'm teaching two introductory sewing classes this spring in Gainesville! The classes are scheduled so that you can take them back to back, if you're interested. Here are the details:
Sewing: Learn to Use a Sewing Machine
Sunday, March 1 -- 9 a.m.-noon
Take the mystery out of sewing and learn how to use a sewing machine. Course is taught by Kim Taylor, aka “The Sassy Crafter” (http://sassycrafter.blogspot.com), who will teach the basics of threading the machine, winding a bobbin, straight stitching, back stitching, zig-zag stitching and other key topics. You'll even leave with a finished project!
Sewing: Learn to Work with Patterns
Sunday, March 1 -- 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
This is a great class for anyone who already knows how to use a sewing machine but doesn’t know how to work with patterns. The class is taught by Kim Taylor, aka “The Sassy Crafter” (http://sassycrafter.blogspot.com), who will teach you the basics of working with commercial patterns, whether you want to make clothes, crafts, or other fun things. The instructor will guide each student through making a pair of simple drawstring pants (great for casual wear or pajamas).
