(More) Sewing Classes in Gainesville!

Yet again, I'm offering sewing classes. I'll be teaching two introductory sewing classes this June through the UF Leisure Course Program. The classes are open to anyone and 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
Saturday, June 6 -- 9 a.m. to 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” (, 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
Saturday, June 6 -- 1 p.m. to 5 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” (, 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).

If you don't have your own sewing machine, I have three sewing machines that can be reserved for an additional fee of $15. You must email me to reserve a machine in advance. (Email: sassycrafter-at-gmail-dot-com.)
