Learn the basics of operating your sewing machine & make a pillow case with Sloane Lenz!

June 29 | 3PM - 6PM

Sloane will teach you the basics of how to use a sewing machine, all while making a fun pillowcase to decorate your bed with in the process! We'll start from the ground up, no prior sewing experience needed, but it also won't hurt. We'll start by drafting a simple pattern based on an already existing pillowcase, then cut out our pieces from the fabric of your choice. We'll go over stitches and hemming techniques to finish out the projects, and then you'll be able to trim the pillow case however you like using any of the fun trims I bring with me :) Then you'll leave with a finished project and more knowledge on how to use your sewing machine, and approach future projects with new foundational tools.

What's covered?
  • Different stitches
  • Hemming techniques
  • Adding trim 

What to bring to class:

  • BYOSM (bring your own Sewing machine!) - if you have never used your machine, please make sure you machine works before class
  • Sloane will supply fabric, however, feel free to bring your own!
