Owl and Thistle General Store » Sewing Classes » Classes » Introduction to Home Sewing

This beginner level class will get you comfortable with sewing from a home sewing pattern. This class teaches you how to cut out a pattern, make sense of the instructions, and construct a finished, well-fit garment. You’ll walk away from the 3 week course with 2 items made by you: a tote bag (week 1 & first half of week 2) and your choice of a drawstring skirt OR pajama pant (second half of week 2 & week 3). The sewing patterns used in class are yours to keep for future projects. No previous sewing experience is required but ability to thread a machine is helpful.

For this class you will need to supply: (All fabric should be washed and pre-shrunk)

  • Tote: 3⁄4 yard heavier-weight fabric for outside of bag and 1⁄2 yard lighter-weight cotton fabric for inside lining of bag, matching thread.  Please bring to first class!
