Though robots largely manufacture most of today's fashionable clothing, spot-welded slacks can chafe even the sturdiest of waistlines. Learn to produce metal-free fashion with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a "Get Up and Sew" beginner’s sewing course, consisting of four 3-hour classes at PDX Seamsters on Southeast Stark Street (a $130 value).
PDX Seamsters hosts a variety of small group courses to bolster neophyte needlers' grasps of the tricks and trades of sewing and tailoring. The Get Up and Sew course lays down foundational sewing and fabric skills, giving attendants the beginning knowledge needed to succeed in personal projects, such as self-made clothing or flying squirrel emergency parachutes. The hands-on course teaches sewing terminology and sewing machine mechanics, as well as zipper, buttonhole, casing, hand-sewing, finishing, hem, alteration, and detail techniques in four individual lesson blocks. Once the introductory class covering sewing-machine basics has been taken, classes do not have to be scheduled in any specific order. All classes include the necessary materials and equipment to skillfully complete any assigned projects, though attendants are more than welcome to bring their own sewing machine or self-designed thread-bot.
Groupon customers may purchase two of today's deal, applying the second to the subsequent intermediate class.
