Beginning Sewing 101 Lewiston Community Education Class 2/19/2022 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

"Sewing fills my days, not to mention the living room, bedroom and closets!" 

I was recently told by one of the children from a previous beginners class that she was now SEWING! I laughed and said yes, you are. She said NO! I wasn't sewing a few weeks ago and now I am! All thanks to you!

That is why I teach folks. This class is that weekly course on steroids minus the kid projects.

Beginning Sewing 101 is designed for the beginner who has never sewed, but wants to or the person who may have sewed once or twice, but hasn't taken their machine out of the box in twenty years and needs a refresher course. I am here to help! My goal is to help alleviate the fear that comes with sewing for you. I think if most people got through the headache of properly threading a machine they would keep going.

In this class we go over all the parts of a sewing machine from threading it, to winding the bobbin. I help you become familiar with the different stitches and what they do. I show you how to change the foot, what the different feet are and how to change a needle. We will talk about the tension and stitch width dials- what they mean and how to use them. Class time will be provided to practice stitching.

Consider this your comprehensive guide to sewing with a mentor at your side. I want to help relieve your sewing anxiety! This class also provides you with an option to purchase our optional sewing journal kit for $30.00. They are a perfect resource guide to help assist beginners on their sewing journeys. For more information on our sewing journal kits please see our sewing journal class description.  If you have one from a previous class please bring it along. 

Students aged 11 and up are welcome to register for this class when a parent or guardian is also registered and attends the same class

Class fee $35 Optional Supply fee of $30 due the first night of class for sewing junk journal supplies.
