An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, happening 4 times

$135

Thursday evenings 27 September, 4, 11, 18 October 6-8:30pm (four sessions)

Cost: $135 (includes 1/2 a meter of craft cotton for bias binding)

To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.

Improve your sewing, learn a whole raft of new skills, and make a cute and versatile pinafore dress that is just perfect as your first post-Absolute Beginners project.

Working with the Helen’s Closet York Pinafore pattern you’ll learn how to:

  • do basic pattern adjustments included lengthening, shortening, & grading between sizes
  • make bias binding
  • bind edges and hems using two different binding techniques
  • attatch patch pockets
  • sew understitching
  • sew beautiful topstitching

We’ll adjust and improve on the information given in the pattern throughout the class, learning how to make each technique effective and easy as possible.

The class will particularly focus on bias finishing edges: a technique that is used in a whole range of sewing patterns, but which can be fiddly and frustrating to work with.  We’ll give you a whole set of skills to make your bias finishes as easy and professional as possible.

High Beginners = Suitable for those with basic fabric handling and sewing machine skills.  Perfect as a follow up to Absolute Beginners.

Cost: $135 (includes 1/2 a meter of craft cotton for bias binding)

Materials: Students will need to provide the pattern, the main fabric and thread for their dress and any notions called for in the pattern.  Recommendations will be provided when you register.

To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
