Advanced Sewing Skills

Each session will begin with instructions on a technique. Students will be given handouts where they can add their stitch length, needle position, stitch width and type of thread and needle.  The goal is to create a book or guide of the techniques demonstrated each week.  When appropriate, web links and handouts will be included.

Some of the techniques that will be demonstrated are:

  • zipper fly
  • welt pocket
  • shirring
  • using grommets, snaps, rivets
  • double needle sewing
  • using fantastic elastic in waistbands
  • understitching

After the demonstration, students may spend the rest of class working on their own project or practicing the current technique further.
