The sewing course has a total of 14 hours divided into 7 lessons in two hours each, and runs one day a week at the same time. Each course has a capacity of 5 participants, exceptionally, there might be 5 people at lesson, but only in special circumstances, when someone needs to catch up missed lesson. So the teacher has enough time for each of you and can help you with every little struggle you might have. We take special care of choosing the teachers. You first steps with the sewing machine will be guided by talented and very kind Fernanda Broell.
The first lesson is largely theoretical, but do not worry, you will also get to the machine. Most importantly you well find very useful all the information you gain in the future! You will be explained what tools you need to sew, how the sewing machine works, why an iron is your best sewing friend while trying to stitch the fabric for the very first time.
The basics are behind you and you can now get ready for the production of a practical bag or backpack. It is up to you which product type you will chose. When making the bag, you learn how to stitch up the straps and attach studs. Anyway, your level of sewing will be a little higher! And believe us, that such a bag or backpack of your own production will make you a lot of joy.
At this moment we drop on a cosmetic bag (or any other purpose small practical bag). When sewing this product you will learn to prepare a more complex product design and, above all, the correct zip attachment. As soon as you learn sew the zipper, you are halfway through to the winning. Just try to realize how many things you have at home with a zip! So many new possibilities are open with this new possibility. You’ll enjoy the beauty of the bag every day, and it’ll be great for traveling.
4 – 5th lesson
Now is the time when we try sew something to wear. You will sew a skirt in which shape you want. You can sew round skirt or pencil skirt. It is up to you. When it is done, you need the upper part of course. So you are ready for sewing a t-shirt.
6 – 7th lesson
You already know working with the woven fabric. The machine is listening every word you say, so we can try out more complicated materials. Let’s replace the woven fabric with a knitted one and try to work a flexible and elastic material. Sewing a T-shirt will take us a little more time, so we divided this last project into 2 lessons. During finishing your T-shirt you will learn the basics of using overlock and also get a quick training on pattern editing.
