Welcome to our Sewing Skill Building (SSB) class series! These classes are designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to help you grow as a home sewist. Sessions 4 and 5 will focus on important skills needed to fit and construct a garment. These two sessions, taught by Tina Hughes, are recommended prerequisites for her Garment School 1 and Garment School 2 courses.
You will be provided with a binder to keep all your personal notes and samples to refer back to when you sew at home or in other classes. These classes can be taken in any order or combination depending on the skills you personally need to learn. We also offer SSB 1, 2, and 3 which focus on basic sewing skills. All of our SSB classes are designed to be taken individually or as a series, whichever you prefer.
It’s important that you have your own sewing machine so that your notes can include settings and preferences specific to your machine. This means your binder will be tailored specifically to your needs and preferences!
In SSB 5, Two 2.5 hour sessions will cover the construction of:
- Bias Tape
- Neck facing
- Inseam Pockets
- Rolled Hem
- Setting in a Sleeve
Required skills - must be familiar with your machine - can thread your machine and change settings without assistance.
- Binder (unless you already have one from another class)
- Note pages
- Muslin Swatches
Students must bring:
- Sewing Machine
- Thread and wound bobbin (a dark color is preferred to help you see the stitching on the muslin swatches)
- Binder (if you already have one, otherwise you will receive one in class)
- A pen or pencil
