Sewing Fundamentals - Apron Course
Dates & Time
This course will run once a month over two Saturdays. Each day will be from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM with a half-hour break in between.
Who is this class for?
This class is designed for absolute beginner sewers to confident intermediate sewers. 3 levels of difficulty will be provided to cater to your skill level.
What will I learn?
This class will teach you the basics of sewing with a domestic machine through the creation of an archetypal chef’s apron. You will learn the anatomy of a domestic sewing machine and its functions, how to thread the machine, wind a bobbin, the role of thread tensions, and a number of different stitches and settings.
You will learn how to read a pattern, cut fabric following correct grainlines, and construct the pieces into a chef’s apron.
This style will teach you to sew both straight and curved seams, how facings function, to mark and place functioning patch pockets, how to finish edges neatly and how to bag out and create long ties for your apron. The use of an overlocker for the facings will be an option in this class.
