Basic Sewing Techniques
In this class we will practice zipper insertion, buttonholes, darts and hems. We will insert invisible zippers, centered zippers and lapped zippers. You can make a buttonhole on any zig zag machine if you know how. We will practice until you are an expert! Learn the many types and purposes of darts. Sometimes they sneak in where you don't notice. There are many types of hems for pants, skirts, blankets or whatever. Come join us for a fun learning experience! Kit fee $10
