If you have never taken a sewing class at Silk Road Textiles, this class is REQUIRED before taking any other kids' or teens' sewing classes. In this introductory session, you will learn to use and care for a sewing machine. Covered topics include properly threading the needle, winding a bobbin, sewing a straight line, selecting stitch patterns, and good sewing habits. During the class we will all make pincushions that can be used throughout other sewing classes. If time permits, we may also make heart pillows. You are welcome to bring your machine from home or use one of ours - just let us know when you register which you'd prefer.
Required Reading: Most of the projects in our kids' entry level sewing classes come from A Kid's Guide To Sewing by Sophie Kerr. If you do not already own a copy of this book, you will need to purchase one to participate in our classes. You can purchase the book in the SRT Online Marketplace or in person at Silk Road Textiles.
Fabric and thread included in class price.
