Sewing 101 Class Details:

Class 1: We jump right in, teaching you how to thread your machine, wind a bobbin and use the stitch selector. You’ll even make a napkin with mitered corners to take home at the end of your very first class.

Class 2: You’ll learn to sew a reversible tote bag. But you’ll learn so much more about fabric, print directional, picking a lining vs your exterior fabric, installing handles, top stitching and more.

Class 3: We’re making a roll-up organizer. This clever project is perfect for storing your sewing tools, make-up brushes, crayons or colored pencils, toiletries and more. We’ll be reinforcing the material you learned in the first two classes, honing in on your sewing accuracy, learning to use bias tape, adding pockets and more.

Class 4: Graduation night is a big one; you’ll make a piped zippered pillow! You’ll use all of the skills from classes 1-3 and then you’ll learn to install a zipper using your zipper foot, sewing down cording and more.

We’ve taught hundreds of people just like you how to sew — not just sewing that one project in class, but really LEARNING how to sew, so you’ll be able to make projects at home on your own. Our seasoned instructors that have the knowledge and patience to set you on the right path.

We love to hear from our students! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. You can visit Google to leave a review or see what others are saying about us.

“I took the Sewing 101 class- includes 4 dedicated projects (with extra projects)! Diana, my teacher, was so kind, patient and knowledgeable. I was a total newbie that had no idea about using my sewing machine. I really enjoyed the classes and had fun with my fellow classmates! I can’t wait to start Sewing 102!” ~Weslyn (Google)

“My beginning sewing class was fantastic! Diana was incredibly helpful and supportive with our group. The group size (5) was perfect. Diana was able to help and facilitate us all within the class time. I never felt rushed and the homework is straight-forward (with pictures!). I always felt encouraged and safe to ask lots of questions 🙂 I will definitely be taking another class soon!” ~Lola (Google)

“I just finished the sewing 101 class with Diana and cannot say enough good things about the studio, class, or teacher! The studio has plenty of cutting space and materials for working with your fabric and is set-up in such a way as to make your set/up super easy.

In Sewing 101, we got familiar with our individual machines and comfortable working with them. Diana was a pro at walking us through these processes while providing helpful tips and tricks. Most importantly, she made it all accessible and met each student exactly where we were. Some of these tips solved consistent challenges I’d been facing when sewing at home and helped make my time sewing both easier and more joyful!

The projects were thoughtfully ordered in such a way as to build upon skills learned in the previous class and resulted in great items to keep or gives as gifts to family or friends. Finally, I cannot say enough about Diana’s focus and patience. She was always happy to contextualize her answers so we could apply them to multiple sewing situations or techniques and happy to remind us of basic steps in our sewing process. I’ll definitely be taking another class at Fabricate! This class brought a lot of joy and fun to my life!!!!” ~Joshua (Google)
