Exploring Sewing Skills (9th-12th)

Teacher: Jamie Miller

Description: This class is for students who have at least intermediate sewing level. We will work on a variety of sewing skills that the students can then use on projects at home. We will learn tips and tricks to make sewing easier as well as improving existing skills such as installing a zipper. Then, we will try our hand at pattern making and construct our new design. Some work at home will be needed for practice.
