Taught by an expert sewing instructor, you will learn how to operate and troubleshoot a sewing machine, hand-sewing techniques, purchase fabric, cut and sew your projects. Additional time will be spent learning how to hem to give your garments the most flattering length. Projects include: double drawstring bag, pillow with zipper and an apron. Patterns are provided.
