An apron is a handy tool to have around in the kitchen, garden or even the craft studio. Without the need for tailoring, aprons are a great introductory sewing project for beginners. You’ll learn to work from a pattern as well as tips on hemming and sewing curved lines. Add a stitched patch pocket, and learn tips for reinforcing the top corners. Each participant will apply the techniques covered in class to create a simple apron from reclaimed fabrics. A DIY apron is a great handmade gift for your foodie friends!
Before participating in this workshop, students will need to take our Sewing Machine Basics workshop or have basic knowledge of how to use the sewing machine to sew a straight and zig-zag stitch.
This is a live virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom, and participants will receive information about how to participate by email prior to the class. You will be able to pickup a kit of supplies containing thread, fabric, pins, and a pattern on Thursday, August 5 from 11a-5pm, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a different time. You must have a sewing machine in working order setup at home, and you will need scissors and an iron as well.
