Make your first dress or your wedding dress! Learning to sew in your own home means dedicated attention, learning at your own pace, getting to know your own machine, making whatever you wish and being able to schedule your classes. I teach at 4 different Adult Education Colleges, but if you’ve tried group sewing classes before and have found they are not for you, or you just need an occasional booster class to learn some difficult techniques, I can provide you with one-to-one tuition geared to your own pace of working.
This will be your first step towards designing your own garments and drafting your patterns. Once you have mastered the basic Pattern Cutting techniques, you will be well on your way to creating those wonderful designs that you have always dreamed of! This is an intensive one day course on which you will learn the basic principles of Pattern Cutting.
