Hand Sewing Basics

Yes, we’re all about machines but we also know a thing or two about hand stitching.  We’re excited to offer this technique based class to learn everything you ever wanted to know about hand stitching.

In this class, we will cover the following hand stitches & techniques:    

  • How to Stitch a Backstitch
  • How to Sew a Slip/Whip Stitch
  • How to Stitch a Running/Basting Stitch
  • How to Sew a Blanket Stitch
  • How to Sew a Button
  • How to Start (lock-stitch), Tie Off the Thread and End Sewing
  • How to sew a Hem
  • What you need to know about needles & threads 

This is a hands-on technique based course, no project will be completed.  We will provide a small kit with supplies for you to practice techniques.  

Minimum Class Size:  There must be at least two students signed up for the class for it to proceed.  We will let you know 24 hours in advance if we do not have enough students and will give you an opportunity to sign up for an alternative class.  

The safety of our students & instructors remains our top priority.  We require that all instructors and students wear masks - either in our outdoor classroom tent or inside.  If your child is feeling ill, please stay home!  Students must bring their own sewing machines (no rentals will be provided).  

You may cancel class up to 24 hrs in advance of your class start time; after which you will forfeit your class fee unless we can fill your spot from the waiting list, or you can send a friend.  We appreciate your understanding on this - as a small business, we are fortunate enough to have only the best instructors and they need to be paid  All cancellations must be received in writing,  Sorry, no exceptions.
