Workshop, Advanced Sewing Machine Skills, 3 hour in studio instruction
I love sewing. I’ve been sewing for decades but the only sewing course I ever took was Home Economics back in grade school.
Fast forward a few years and I have my own textile studio where I get to make the loviest things every day.
I know so many of you would love to learn how to sew. In 2020 I just started hosting in-studio sewing lessons. The one-on-one instructions were so fun to host. I love being able to teach again and see my clients beam with their sewing successes. Sadly, due to the shut-downs I had to stop offering in-person sewing lessons.
I’m so happy to say that now they’re back! Yay!
Location: This Advance sewing machine skills course is an in-person sewing instruction course that is hosted in my studio, which is on the second floor of my little log cabin, located in Douro-Dummer Ontario. I live in a rural area in cottage country surrounded by trees. I have ample parking and a maintained road to my little cabin in the woods, so it’s quite easy to get to.
Duration: Each course is over one day from 19am-12 (ish) or from 1-4pm (ish) it always takes a bit longer than three hours so I add grace time at the end of each session
When: The day for this instruction is determined by us in a conversation after your purchase. I try as much as possible to be flexible to off the time of day and day of the week that best suits your schedule
Equipment: The uses a domestic sewing machine. I use an electronic Janome C30 as my teaching machine. But I have a Pfaff manual sewing machine for those who prefer learning on a Manual sewing machine
You can bring your own sewing machine to use for the day if you have already purchase one and know that it’s in good running condition.
What’s Included: Your Advance Sewing Machine Skills instruction day includes the learning project fabrics that you worked on for the day. In this Advanced Skills workshop you will learn how to select the correct weight and substrate of fabrics for your projects, press your project as you go, sew zippers, both exposed and invisible, make pockets, laminate fabrics to use for structured sewing and learn how to lay out your project steps to easily complete any project you chose. Normally in this course is focused on bag making skills, but these skills can be used for making clothing and homewares.
Please Note! This instruction only course does not provide you with a completed project! If you purchase one of my project kits to work through, you may not have completed the kit in this session, but you will have the skills needed to complete a project kit on your at home.
