Megan Avery, author of sewing guides such as Bag Bazaar and owner of M Avery Design, works with a crew of experienced stitchers to lead a schedule of fabric-manipulating classes. In Introduction to the Sewing Machine, pupils learn to set up stitching apparatuses, change needles, and fill bobbins. Instructors illustrate the process of adjusting stitches’ size and style, allowing for the creation of more advanced pieces and scarecrows with a wider range of emotion. Classes for kids and classes for tweens elucidate the basics of fashion and accessory design and free young paws to stitch or craft the hands-on project of their choice. Kids tap into a colorful well of included materials and work at their own pace, and completed projects travel home at the end of the class to hang proudly on refrigerators full of trophies.

A joyful profusion of books, art, and supplies lines the walls of the spacious classroom, where sewing machines whir and shears thrum along long tables on black- and white-checkered floors. Along the soaring ceiling, projects in progress dangle from hangers next to swatches of colorful fabrics, spools of thread, and crafting supplies.

Customer Reviews

Ashley was great &he's very patient with me. I never touch a sewing machine in my life so it was an educational experience. With more time invested I believe I will be able to complete an outfit.
