SEWING LESSONS

Sewing Lessons for Charter School Students, Home School Students and Individuals

 

I now offer sewing lessons for local charter and home school students, as well as other individuals wanting to learn to sew. I am a registered vendor for many charter schools, so voucher funds can be used for lessons. Please contact me to inquire about lessons for your child or yourself:

I offer sewing instruction of all levels and types. Lessons range from beginning to intermediate, and include hand sewing and machine sewing. My 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 lessons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10am-4pm.  Lessons 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. For group lessons, I can have a maximum of three students at a time. 

Lessons Offered:

 

Beginning Sewing:

 

This lesson plan 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 Hand Sewing

- Beginning Machine Sewing

 

Lessons are generally 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: Creating an envelope pillow cover, making a simple pair of pajama pants, basic clothing mending and altering, and other beginning projects utilizing both machine and hand sewing techniques.

Lessons are $55/hour and all fabric, equipment, supplies and needed materials are provided!

Lessons are generally 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.
