Advanced Sewing (7th-12th)

Teacher: Jamie Miller

Description: All sewing classes are designed to introduce students to a range of sewing skills. Our hope is if they have fun in class they will have a desire to sew on their own after they have completed the class. We do not have any outside homework. All projects will be completed in class and are required to stay in class until completed. Finished projects will be taken home.

This Advanced Sewing Class is intended for students who are ready to expand on beginner skills they have already learned. The student will be required to read patterns and encouraged to understand them as they progress to the more difficult and advanced projects. The number of projects will be determined by the student’s pace and the speed at which they comprehend the skills being taught. Advanced sewing students will be introduced to new sewing concepts such as collars, cuffs, zipper insertion, sewing buttons on with a sewing machine, button holes and twin needles.
