(Formerly Sewing 1) Come and discover the rewarding world of sewing in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Learn the basics about your sewing machine, sewing language, taking body measurements, fabrics, patterns, and garment construction order. This course is suited to the beginner sewer as well as those who would like to update their skills. You will learn sewing techniques that will prepare you to work in the sewing industry.
