INTRODUCTORY SEWING
Whether you're a first-time seamstress-in-the-making or a frequent dabbler looking to increase your knowledge and refine your sewing skills, this program is the perfect place to start. Introductory Sewing is our most technically focused, most comprehensive sewing course. And it’s fun to boot! You’ll learn the basics of sewing plus how to work with (and adjust!) a pattern. You’ll build a solid sewing foundation (read: be able to sew anything after this!) and you'll leave with three projects including a custom fitted skirt or pj pants. We'll have you on your way to sewing much, much more.

And men, we didn't forget you. We have had many men in our Introductory Sewing classes over the years and while some men enjoy making skirts for the women in their lives, others wish to make something for themselves. That is why we now offer drawstring pajama pants as an alternative to the skirt project. Please note that the McCalls #M5992 drawstring pajama pant pattern is the only pattern acceptable for this class and no other pj pattern will be approved.
