This class is for those who have never sewed before and beginners who want to improve their skills. You will learn to push the limits, constructing a dual garment such as a street length skirt that can also be used as a top, or a floor length skirt that can be used as a dress. Many more ideas as time allows. Sewing machines and a serger will be available for class work. You are also encouraged to bring your own sewing machine or serger.
