Beginner Sewists Funky Pillowcase

March 17 at 1:30 pm 4:00 pm

This fun Miss Mouse Sewing class is for young learners ages 9 and up who would like to learn basic sewing machine skills. During this 2 ½ hour course students will learn to thread a sewing machine, wind a bobbin, straight stitch, back stitch and more. Additional lessons include pinning and cutting fabric, seam allowances and fundamental sewing techniques. In the process we will make a pillowcase out of 3 coordinating fabrics with French seams along with the “burrito method” for hiding all raw edges. A very bespoke product will be worth all your efforts!

Students can bring their one favorite fabric and supplies or, purchase an optional supply kit from the instructor.

Supplies to bring: Fabric, cotton woven, 3 pieces- 7/8 yd, 1/3 yd & 1/8yd., spool of thread, fabric scissors and pins.

Optional sewing supplies kit: $15
