This course is designed for a beginner with very little or no sewing experience or as a refresher for someone who has not sewn in a long time.  You will learn to operate the sewing machine while building the basic skills of sewing and finishing seams, making darts, sewing a curve, proper pressing techniques, and how to use fusible interfacing. Learn how to do small repairs like hemming a pair of pants or jeans. You will make a binder of samples for future reference. Build your skills in a bright classroom where the sewing machines are supplied.  This is a  perfect class before Level 1.
