All sewing materials will need to be purchased by the student.  Fabric requirements are based on the projects that are instructor approved.  Machine rentals are available for $3 per class or $12 for the session.  Payments must be made in advance for the classes as instructed by your acceptance letter to the class (we like to keep class sizes small).  Payments are non-refundable unless request is made 10 days prior to the beginning of classes.

Beginners:

Beginners will learn the basics of the sewing machine, how to thread the machine, load a bobbin, sew a straight line, make a simple pouch to get used to sewing on fabric, cut out PJ bottoms from a pattern provided by us and put them together with an elastic waistband and machine hemming.  If there is time at the end of the class you can then make a drawstring bag.

Intermediate:

Intermediate or continuing students will be able to make a project approved by the instructor.  In the past students have made hoodies, exercise jackets, pants, skirts and blouses.  You must provide all required materials for your project.  We often have patterns that we can share with you for many of these projects.  Please provide the instructor with a photo or pattern number of your desired project for approval at the time of signing up for the class.  You must have taken a beginner class either with us or someone else or have the ability to run your sewing machine or a rental without help.  Many of our students continue on with us until they are comfortable sewing on their own or if they want help in making a specific project like a bathing suit or something equally challenging.  Your skills should be gently challenged by your project not totally stressing you out.   The project should be able to be completed in the 8 hours of classes if possible. Sewing should be fun!

Your sewing teachers have many years of experience and both are avid clothes and quilt makers.

Louise  has been teaching sewing and running sewing and craft camps at our guild for more than a decade.  With over 50 years of sewing experience, Louise has made all types of clothing and in her spare time volunteers to make costumes for the Unionville Theatre Company's annual productions.
