By Famoré Cutlery (other events)

2 Dates Through Jun 03, 2023

In this class, you will learn how to thread a bobbin, thread a machine, sew a straight line, learn how to sew a French seam, and press fabric. In this class, you will make a tote bag out of cotton fabric that you get to keep forever. This class is perfect for anyone who dreams of sewing their own costume. If you can learn how to straight stitch, you can learn how to make costumes. This is an entry-level class. 

Class Difficulty:

  • Entry: Anyone, no matter their skill level, can take the class.
  • Newbie: Has completed a sewing project or a similar project within that medium.
  • Intermediate: Has completed multiple projects of varying difficulties, but lacks certain knowledge and techniques.
  • Advanced: Is ready to learn just about anything and is ready to pick up a new skill!
