Learning to Sew Stitch by Stitch Series II - Spring 2019

with Jena Eaton-Burke


Have you been too afraid to learn how to sew? Starting to sew is simple if you go stitch by stitch. Learning how to sew is a “hands on” and “learning by doing” experience. It does take practice to build up skill in order to do all the stitches correctly, but that’s the great part about learning with your new best friend the seam ripper. After you do a few of the projects, you will feel that you can do anything with sewing!

We will cover:

  • Sewing machine basics, care and use
  • Stitch basics and types
  • Fabric and fiber types
  • Marking and cutting fabric
  • Understanding sewing pattern markings
  • Sizing and fitting
  • Beginners’ Project: PJ pants
