You'll be guided through the process of learning to use a sewing machine with emphasis on the basics. A pre cut tote bag will be made from your newly learned skills. A great opportunity for beginners and fun fellowship for those with more advanced skills. The studio environment in itself encourages new ideas and collaboration. Techniques covered include learning to safely operate a sewing machine, basic sewing machine functions, straight stitching, optional heat pressed initial, attaching a pocket to a tote bag. Finally a leather strap will be be attached using rivets.
Carla And Arthur
My mom taught me to sew at 6 years old and I received a BA in Costume and Textile Design in 1985. For the last 40 + years I have been a costume designer, custom dressmaker for weddings, proms, uniforms until I felt the call to teach sewing classes in 1999. Teaching local, private sewing classes has helped me to develop my own style of interacting with students by keeping the classes small, to have direct interaction with the students. It also enabled me to heed the call to teach classes internationally in Kenya and Papua New Guinea where women needed encouragement in learning this skill.
