Sewing Basics

I did it! I signed up for sewing classes where I will formally learn how to sew. I learned how to use a heavy duty machine when my family sold me to the sweat shops. I used to sew cuffs to shirts, collars, sleeves to the shirt, etc. I only did what I was told. Now I get to learn this:

Courses: Arts: Creative Skills

Sewing Basics [3311X]

Calling all those who want to start sewing or who use to sew and want to again. This is the perfect course to get your machine, and you, humming. Students will learn machine sewing by making small projects such as pillowcases and shoe bags. Types of machines and purchasing options will be discussed at the first class. Students provide their own machine at the second class. $10 materials fee payable to the presenter in class; and additional supplies will be needed for the projects.

Wooohooo. I can't wait, classes start next Thurs and I'm sure my Hello Kitty sewing machine can't wait to come out and play.

That's awesome, crafty lady! I think I told you that I'm scarred from a sewing class I took a couple of years ago, and it took me 13 hours to make a paif of pajama pants. I'll sew vicariously through you now.
