BEGINNER CLASSES, teach the building blocks or basics of machine sewing, familiarizing students with home sewing machines and their functions, as well as teaching them about fabrics and introducing them to easy home sewing patterns. INTERMEDIATE CLASSES, take basics and start to overlap skills and introduce more specialized techniques for use in more detailed patterns and projects. ADVANCED CLASSES, teach students at this level about sewing and constructing projects from advanced home sewing patterns that involve more steps and require the use of more difficult sewing techniques. Students work on bigger, multiple step projects that require larger investment of time and focus. CHALLENGING CLASSES, are for students who are proficient home sewists and are now pursuing dynamic concepts like pattern manipulation, color theory, and working with a combination of fabrics and sewing techniques to create elaborate projects with optimal results. The "Recommended Skill Level" for any class can always be found in the description section of the class listing. If you have questions about which "Skill Level" your abilities fit best feel free to Contact Us and we will assist you with skill assessment.
