Join us for our comprehensive beginner course! Learn how to sew while exploring the world of fabric, commercial patterns, alterations, and classic sewing techniques.

You will leave this class with a cute skirt with a partial elastic waist, or a comfy pyjamas pants!
You will learn to:
  • Operate a sewing machine.
  • Sewing techniques (stay stitching, ease, darts, pleats, and more!)
  • Properly press and iron garments for sewing
  • Take proper measurements
  • Identify and use various types of fabric, thread, and interfacing
  • Select the right fabric for your project
  • Work with commercial patterns (and pick the pattern that best compliments you!)
Students will need a domestic sewing machine, iron, and basic sewing kit at home to practice and complete homework (approximately 20 hours). EcoEquitable will supply the sewing machine for use in the class.
Oct 7 - Dec 9** This is a baby-friendly class. We want to congratulate Sophie Landriault on her new born baby! She will be bringing her baby to her classes; moms with their little ones are welcome into the class. (In order to keep our  safety rules, babies must be in their strollers at all times)
