This class is now full. Should a spot open up, Guild Members will be notified.

This class is a hands-on class.  A work packet of samples is required.  The technique will be demonstrated and then you will complete your own samples.

  • Sewing Without Pins – 85% of your sewing can be done without pins.  Learn why and how.
  • Curves – Inside and Outside – counteracts the natural tendency of forcing the fabric into the needle.
  • Lapped Zipper – this is the kind of zipper that can be put in the side of a skirt as it is a curved seam and it also covers the zipper and you can’t see it.
  • Centered Zipper – this zipper is inserted without pins and with the facing ready and in position
  • “Burrito” Waistband – this technique is a method to avoid dealing with 6 layers of fabric at the corners of waistbands, cuffs, and collar bands.
  • Perfect Top-stitching – demonstration only
  • Understitching the proper way – is an art form.  We want to sculpt our lining or facings so it forms the structure from which the garment will fall and hang correctly
  • Flat Felled Seam – normally flat-felled seams are a lot of work – sewing it once, trimming, folding it over, pressing etc.  Learn the easy way to sew flat felled seams.
  • Shirt pockets – sew a shirt pocket without pins and stretching of the pocket.
  • Patch pockets – sew an easy patch pocket without pins.
  • Invisible zipper insertion – demonstration only.
