Sewing


Sewing Fundamentals (Tanya Ivory Mayes)
This beginning class will build your sewing skills with step-by-step projects. With assistance from your instructor, cut and sew a custom-fitted elastic-waist skirt and pants. Learn how to buy the best fabric for your project, how to identify types of fabric, and how to cut properly. Learn fashion industry pattern and sewing terms, and special pressing and hem techniques. These exciting projects will be amazingly simple to finish. The confidence you gain will spur you on to the next challenge. NOTE: Bring your sewing machine (in good working order) to each class with its manual, scissors, pins, and thread. A supply list will be handed out at the first class.

Continental Knitting: Knit a Scarf
Knitting is not only a great survival skill. The repetitive motion of knitting makes it a natural stress reducer; gentle hand movements prevent and relieve arthritis. Use a Continental approach, which is faster than American because you work with only one hand. Learn it all–from deciphering most common pattern abbreviations to finishing the last stitch of your scarf. Great for gift giving too! NOTE: Scarf yarn will be discussed during the first class and is to be purchased before the second meeting. Right-handed knitting will be taught, although instruction will be modified for left-handers.

Knitting for Baby
Will there be a new addition to your family soon? They deserve hand knit luxury. Whether you're a first time mom or expecting your 10th grandchild, prepare to welcome them by knitting an adorable, super-soft hat. In class, finish a small baby hat and get tips on making a matching blanket or cardigan. NOTE: Course is suitable for people who have never knitted, or who need a refresher. Don't bring anything to class: yarn kits and needles will be available for purchase.
