Demystifying Patterns – Unraveling the Mystery of Reading and Using Sewing Pattern @ Needle, Ink and Thread | Beavercreek | Ohio | United States


Have you ever wanted to use patterns but became completely lost when looking at the back cover?  The symbols and cutting guide look like a foreign language? Then this is the class for you!

I will teach you about measurements, patterns, indie vs. commercial, fabric choices and more! We will also do a mock pattern (miniature) so you can get comfortable with laying out your pattern pieces and cutting them! Once you cut your fabric, you commit to the shape/size. Let me help it become less intimidating.
