Advanced Sewing and Fitting

Advanced Sewing and Fitting

This course is designed to take you from the foundation of the basic fundamentals and create new skills used in the majority of sewing projects. These sessions are flexible and open-ended, so you can return to your sewing sessions for as long as you would like. The selection of projects should take into account the skills you want to learn.

The flexibility of this course is designed to be open-ended, allowing you to return to sewing class for as long as you wish to have the assistance of an instructor. Sign up for sets of  3, 6, or 12 sessions, depending upon your chosen project or the specific set of skills you are working on. Work semi-independently with your newly acquired skills from the Sewing and Pattern Fundamentals course, by scheduling your instructor-assisted sessions as needed for help with new, more challenging techniques.

Sewing & Pattern Fundamentals is a prerequisite to this class.
