Sewing Pattern Basics Workshop Saturday 8th September 2pm – 5pm
Learn to read and cut paper patterns in this 3 hour Sewing Pattern Basics workshop.
Understanding how to use a sewing pattern is the first step in learning how to sew your own clothes and with so many great patterns out there now is the time to start!
The internet is becoming an increasingly popular place to source and purchase interesting patterns from independent designers. Patterns are often available as PDF downloads which have the advantage of being cheaper and instantly accessible. You’ll be shown how to prepare PDF patterns for cutting and will be given a comprehensive list of links to the best indie pattern designers on the web.
Many patterns these days come with multiple sizes printed on the one sheet which makes for an even more confusing maze of lines and symbols, so we’ll do a quick how-to on tracing a single size from a multi-size pattern.
For students who have little or no experience using a sewing machine, this class can be taken in conjunction with the Sewing Machine Basics Workshop also running on Sunday August 6th (9am – noon). Get $10 off when you purchase both classes
A minimum of four students is required for the class to go ahead. Contact us if you have any questions
