Sew Together Workshop, Scrappy Sewing Skills, 5 hour in studio instruction
I love sewing. I’m a self-taught sewist. Even though I’ve been sewing for decades, the only sewing course I ever took was Home Economics in grade school.
Fast forward a few years and an entire career in post secondary education and now I’m back to sewing and have my own textile studio where I get to make the loviest things every day.
I know so many of you 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 pandemic shut-downs I had to stop offering in-person sewing lessons.
I’m so happy to say that now they’re back! Yay!
This Sew Together Course is priced for two people for the days instruction in my studio. If you require a larger group rate, please send me a message.
Location: This Scrappy Quilting 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: This course instruction is offered over one day from 10am to 3pm (ish) it always takes a bit longer than 5 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 offer the time of day and day of the week that best suits your schedule
Equipment: This course uses a domestic sewing machines. I use an electronic Janome sewing machines as my teaching machines. 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 Scrappy Quilting 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, and learn how to lay out your project steps to easily complete any project you chose. Normally in this course is focused on quilting skills, but these skills can be easily translated to making clothing and homewares.
Please Note! This instruction only course does not necessarily provide you with a completed project in the allotted time frame! 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.
How does it work: you purchase your sewing instruction hours and then send me an email with your scheduling request through my shop email.
