Take a Sewing Workshop with Me!

Hello everyone!

I am happy to announce that I have three sewing workshops scheduled at The Tin Thimble next month!

I taught lessons at the Thimble for many years, and am looking so forward to getting back into the classroom for a few days this October. If you're in the Sacramento area (or are willing to drive!) and are looking for a good sewing class, I've gotcha covered.

I'll start with the workshop I'm most excited about. On Saturday, October 13th from 9:00-5:00 I'll be teaching students all the things about sewing. Students who enroll in this workshop will basically receive 3 workshops in one day and will leave with a garment.

Whether you know how to turn on a sewing machine, or stare at one with panic, this course is a fun, stress-free, thorough, introduction to everything you need to know to get started. Throughout the day, students will learn how to use a sewing machine, good cutting techniques, and how to read a sewing pattern, all while making an Ogden cami by True Bias patterns. To round out your sewing education, we'll also cover basic sewing tools, sewing machine troubleshooting, and finishing techniques. This course will move at a fairly quick pace to ensure that we're able to cover all the topics to get you comfortable with sewing. Please come ready to ask questions, learn and try new things! Lunch will be provided for this workshop so please be sure to alert us to any food allergies or restrictions you have.

The cost of the fabric and pattern is included in the class fee. All required tools will be supplied for you to use in class. Students in the workshop will have three fabric options to choose from.

This class will be capped at 5 students to ensure that each student receives the proper amount of attention. The small class size means it will fill up quickly, be sure to register as soon as you can!

On Friday, October 12th from 11:00-2:00 I'll be teaching students how to use a sewing machine. We'll be going over everything from how to turn the machine on, to how to sew a straight line, to some basic maintenance and troubleshooting. If you have a sewing machine, you are welcome to bring it, but if you don't have one, don't worry. You can borrow one of ours.

Lastly, on October 14th from 10:00-3:00 we'll be covering how to read & use a sewing pattern. 
If you know the basics of sewing and are ready to start using patterns, this is the class for you! Patterns can seem overwhelming at first, but after this class you'll be more than comfortable with their mysterious symbols. We will cover the basics of sewing pattern reading, including notches, straight of grain, darts, proper layout, how to decipher correct sizes and fabric amounts and more. This is a great introductory class for those interested in learning how to make their own clothing. Throughout the day, students will work on a muslin of their pattern. Please note that garments will not be complete by the end of the course.

I'm looking so forward to this weekend full of workshops, and to meeting those who register. Spaces are available in all the classes, but I like to keep the classes small, so be sure to register ASAP before they fill!
