Do you have a teen eager to learn how to sew? Sewing 101 for teens is a 4-part series designed specifically for teens who are beginning their sewing journey. Our instructor will help your teen learn to sew from step 1 — even if their machine is still in the box!
Class 1: We jump right in, teaching students how to thread their machine, wind a bobbin and use the stitch selector. We’ll even get started on our first sewing project, creating a pocket for a tote bag.
Class 2: We’ll sew a tote bag and include the pocket made in the first class. We’ll talk about fabric,using directional fabric, picking a lining vs your exterior fabric, installing handles, top stitching and more.
Class 3: Let’s make some fabric weights! These handy tools are perfect for keeping your patterns in place for tracing and cutting.
Class 4: We’re making a tool roll-up organizer. This clever project is perfect for storing all the tools your need for your sewing projects. We’ll be reinforcing the lessons learned in the first three classes, honing in on your sewing accuracy, and more.
We’ve taught hundreds of people from children to adults how to sew — and we can’t wait to teach your teen!
Skills Learned: all the basics of your machine, backtacking, corners, curves, zippers, trim, linings, bindings, installing handles, hand stitching and finishing.
Cost: $375 if you bring your own sewing machine, $400 if you rent ours. Note: rental machines remain at the studio. If you love sewing as much as we do by the end of your fourth class, we can help make recommendations for a machine that is perfect for the projects you want to create.
