The objective of our sewing class is to introduce the methods of tailoring required to custom make clothing. The curriculum includes a strong emphasis on machine safety and operation and hand sewing techniques, such as buttonholes, basting, over-casting, and cross-stitching. Students will be introduced to a range of textiles, from manmade to natural, and techniques which include pressing, thread marking, cutting, how to measure and pattern drafting.

Note: Student will choose a garment of interest for their final project: Pants, Vests, Jacket, Skirt, Shirt, Dress, etc. 

Henry works with each student based on their personal skill level and preferred pace.  To accommodate one-on-one instruction, class sizes are limited to five students.
