Another fun Beginners Sewing class comes to an end :(

February 5, 2013

Tonight was the last night of the January Beginner’s Sewing class. We had a great time. All 3 students did lovely skirts. Two were pencil skirts and the third was an A-line. Here are some photos of the last night of the beginner’s class:

The pictures are mixed, between the Monday night class that just ended, and the Thursday evening class that will end on the coming Thursday. Here, we have one student, sewing the facing into her skirt, after the fusible interfacing has been fused to the facing. DSC_0103 This student is sewing the side seams of the skirt he is making.  And, of course, this student is installing a zipper for the first time: “Look Teach. I can do it without looking ” 🙂 She actually did a great job and I’ve posted several pics of her sewing it in, so you can see her new Juki sewing machine. This is one of the prettiest sewing machines I’ve seen and it sews like a dream. I think it might have been about $225 on  DSC_0080 DSC_0081 DSC_0082 DSC_0083 Marking for darts.

It’s the first time for all of these students and they did great! DSC_0089 DSC_0090 DSC_0091 DSC_0092 DSC_0093Sewing those darts. It’s not difficult…. come one, you can do it. And she did, with tremendous success 🙂 My students make me proud 🙂 DSC_0094 DSC_0095 DSC_0096 Testing that newly installed zipper. How’d it go?DSC_0097 DSC_0098 DSC_0099 DSC_0100 This is an older sewing machine and a real workhorse. This student used a pattern that called for a waist band, but we took a “pass” on that a she used the skirt body pattern piece and made her own facing and interfacing. This is the basic tw0 panel A-line skirt.DSC_0101 DSC_0102January was fun. We held 2 beginners classes and now, we move on to February. We have a Monday night beginners class that is slammed full and a Thursday evening Intermediate class is looks like it will be comfortably full also. If you are looking for a class in February, they are currently full, but I do offer private lessons during the week. Sorry, no weekends. Even the teacher gets a weekend 🙂 See ya in the sewing studio.
