Class 1 – Introduction to Fabrics & Sewing

LEARN THE BASICS

No sewing experience is required for this class

Before diving straight into your first project, we invite you to train your mind, hands (and foot) in an all-you-can learn introductory sewing class, created to offer you a solid foundation around the most important 3 elements in the world of fashion and sewing: fabrics, the sewing machine and measurements.

Whether you are just curious if sewing is for you, whether you already plan to continue learning with us or you just want to get the basics to then learn by yourself at home, this introduction will provide you with the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to get the easiest start with sewing.

Our focus is to equip you with the fabric knowledge you need to make conscious decisions while shopping for clothes and fabrics, together with the sewing tricks you need to develop a simple and hassle-free sewing process on a home sewing machine. So that when you do start your first project, you know everything you need to complete it in a smooth and fun way.

YOU WILL LEARN

  • which are the most common types of fabrics, their sustainability factor, their properties and uses;
  • how to set up and use correctly the home sewing machine and all its different functions;
  • how to understand and fix quickly the most common beginner home sewing machine set-up issues;
  • how to use the home sewing machine to sew different types of fabrics;
  • how to make different types of stitches you will later need in your projects;
  • how to take correct body measurements.

YOU WILL TAKE HOME

A new understanding of fabrics and different sewing techniques for approaching them; a complete overview of how the sewing machine works and how you can use each of its functions at home, depending on your sewing objective; the sewing knowledge to already start working on the clothes that have been waiting for a repair or to create simple projects; a list of your complete body measurements for your future projects.
