Sewing Patterns Decoded – Commercial And Indie – Wed. Feb 17 5:30-7:30PM
Ever look at a sewing pattern and think “huh”… Well, let me teach you all there is to know about patterns, from sizing, to markings, grading, grainline and more! When you leave you will feel confident on what size (or sizes) you should make as well as basic pattern grading.
Make sure to bring your questions to ask as well!
This is a prerequisite to most garment classes.

Indie and Commerical Sewing
Have you ever wanted to use patterns but became completely lost when looking at the back cover? Why do the symbols and cutting guide look like a foreign language? Then this is the class for you!
I will teach you about measurements, indie vs. commercial, fabric choices and more! We will also do a mock pattern (miniature) so you can get comfortable with laying out your pieces and cutting them! Once you cut your fabric, you commit to the shape/size. Let me help it become less intimidating.
Please make sure to print all materials and bring to class.
