Sewing classes this fall in Gainesville

Sewing class

I'll be teaching two sewing classes this fall through the UF Leisure Course Program. The classes are ideal for anyone who wants to learn to sew or who would like a basic refresher course.

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” (, 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” (, 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.

For full details and to register, visit the UF Leisure Course site.

This class makes me wish I was in Gville- I'm right up the road in Tallahassee

It's only a two hour drive... you could still join us! ;-) Actually, the fall classes are full now, but I'll be doing some fresh classes in the spring including a placemats/napkins class.

By the way, your blog is absolutely delicious! I just learned about it and can't wait to dig through the back posts!
