Sewing classes this fall in Gainesville
Sewing: Learn to Use a Sewing Machine
Saturday, Oct. 24 -- 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” (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
Saturday, Oct. 24 -- 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” (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).
If you don't have your own sewing machine, I have three sewing machines that can be reserved for an additional fee of $15 per class. You must email me to reserve a machine in advance. (Email: sassycrafter-at-gmail-dot-com.)
The classes are offered on the same day and can be taken back to back if you're interested in both.
