Class Basic Sewing 1, Westminster store

 I am so excited to begin this journey with you! Below is a list to the fabric, tools, and notions you will need to complete your projects. Included in your course fee is a “kit” that will include a zipper, interfacing, ribbon and accent fabric for your pillowcase (standard bed size pillow), if desired. This will save you from hunting those things down and having to purchase more than you need.

Week 1 - we will get to know the sewing machine and make a quick project, a PINCUSHION, in the process. You will need: 

Thread – GOOD QUALITY – neutral color like white or off white will come in handy for a lot of sewing projects.  Your basic sewing supplies (see list) that you will bring to each class. Fabric scraps and poly-fil will be provided.

Week 2 - PILLOWCASE – ¾ yd cotton fabric ¼ - 1/3 yd contrasting/coordinating fabric (NOT fat quarters) 2-3" of a contrast fabric (I will bring generics for this) thread to coordinate with the main fabric

Week 3 – APRON - 2 yards of cotton fabric – 1 yard of two coordinating fabrics if you want it reversible thread to coordinate

 Week 4 – ZIPPER BAG – 2 coordinating or contrasting “fat quarters” (18”X22”) 12” or longer zipper (included in your kit) thread (will show on the outside of your bag so it should coordinate) lightweight interfacing (included in kit)

 Week 5 – TRAVEL JEWELRY POUCH – 3 different, but coordinating, “fat quarters” (or ½ yard fabric and 1 fat quarter) thread to match – it will show! 2 yd grosgrain or double-sided satin ribbon (included in kit)

Other tools/items needed for each class – bring with you each time we meet:

A positive attitude and willingness to learn!

Sewing machine needles, size 11 or 14  and Hand sewing needles

Thimble (opt)

Needle threader (opt)

Fabric Shears and Small scissors or snips (we sell a cool pair!)

Pins and pincushion – I prefer the longer quilters pins with a ball head

Tape measure and ruler or seam gauge

Pencil & Marking pen with disappearing ink (opt)

SEAM RIPPER – unfortunately we ALL need these!!

I can’t wait to meet you and share my love of sewing!  Please come to class with the tools and items you need, an open mind and willingness to learn!! Mary Jo
