Sewing 101: Geometric Pillow
Friday, August 25th @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$58
How would you like to sew one these amazing geometric pillows? In this class, we learn the basics of using a sewing machine (no prior sewing experience required!) and we’ll walk you through how to design, cut, and sew up this amazing project! Choose from an array of fabrics to customize your design. Each pillow measures 18″ x 18″, and includes a polished looking fold over backing, so no difficult zippers or buttons are required. You will leave with one square, geometric pillow. This is a stand alone class, so feel free to take our Sewing Bootcamp or other sewing classes afterwards to continue honing your craft!
Some specific skills learned in this class include:
– Learning basic sewing machine settings and usage
– Industry standards for stitch lengths (garments vs. home goods)
– Following an existing pattern and measuring for your own
– AND…you’ll even dip your toe into a little quilting while you’re at it!
Supplies Needed: None. We supply all fabric, pillow inserts, and the machines. You will be using a simple Janome 2212, which is great for learning and skills can easily transfer to other machines. Please don’t bring your own machine.
