I offer sewing instruction of all levels and types. Classes range from beginning to intermediate, and include hand sewing and machine sewing. Focus is primarily on clothing construction, but I can also teach soft goods sewing (curtains, pillows, etc.) and alterations. For charter school students, I teach sewing classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-4pm.  Classes are one hour, and taught at the studio behind my store in the Gold Country Mall in Auburn. Students can bring their own sewing machines, or use the machines I have on site. All supplies and materials are provided. I can have a maximum of three students per class. 

For individuals, I can teach either at my shop in Auburn or at my home studio in Grass Valley, CA

Classes Offered:

 

Beginning Sewing:

 

This class is for those completely new to sewing, or those who haven’t done any sewing in a long time and need a refresher. Sewing is not at all difficult if you take one step at a time as a beginner. Whether you’re completely new to sewing or you’ve got a couple of projects under your belt, I bet you’ll find something you haven’t tried yet here.

 

Lessons include:

- Beginning Machine Sewing

 

Classes will be one hour, with instruction/demonstration of a new skill in first 10 minutes of class, practice of a new skill, and then we’ll work on projects. Examples of projects include: Making a simple glasses case with hand sewing techniques, basic clothing mending and altering with hand sewing techniques, creating an envelope pillow cover with a sewing machine, and making a simple pair of pajama pants with a sewing machine.

Fee: $55 for a one-hour lesson, includes all fabric, materials, supplies and equipment.
