Sewing Your Way! 

We’re offering a new series of sewing classes at our Textiles West North location where you are the designer!

In each class, you choose which pattern you’d like to construct from the three or four options. There will be a variety of patterns for different body shapes and skill levels. Add your choice of fabric and you’ve constructed something that is all your own.

 Similar skills will be used in each of the patterns and are outlined in detail in each class description. Look for our classes on t-shirts, cardigans

and simple dresses. Now is the time to create your unique look.

Class Levels 

These guidelines are meant to help you choose the perfect class for you. 

Fascination – These classes will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class. For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine. Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.

Concentration – The student will be invited to learn more about a certain subject and be expected to have had some experience with it or have taken a prior class. These classes will probably involve several sessions.
Saturation – Students are invited to delve deeply into the subject being taught. Instructors will expect students to be very familiar with the subject and will be teaching with the intent of advancing those skills.

For all our classes be sure to bring your curiosity, a sense of playfulness and a willingness to explore!
