Build Your Skills, One Project at a Time

This virtual class is designed for sewists who are able to use the basic functions of their sewing machine and would like to gain the confidence and inspiration to put their skills to work. Working at your own pace with lots of support, you will make a pillowcase, a half skirt apron, and an elastic waist skirt. 

Using the detailed written and video instructions, you will work on this series of three easy and practical sewing projects at your own pace. The projects are designed to build on each other to help you grow more confident, one baby step at a time. You’ll go from stitching together simple shapes to creating your first custom-fit garment in no time!
