Learn to Sew Sewing 101: Stitches and Hems Sewing Class – Arvada

April 13 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Sure, straight and zigzag stitches are great for most things, but do you ever wonder what else is out there? Does your machine have a whole bunch of stitches that you can’t even begin to guess what they are for?


In this class, we will create stitch outs with all the crazy and elaborate stitches on your machine, talk about what they are used for, and which materials/presser feet work best with them. We will go over stretch stitches, satin stitches, decorative stitches, joining stitches, overlock stitches, and more!


We will also go over different types of hems. We will learn about french hems, rolled hems, blind hems, flat felled hems, and more. We will learn the technique for each one and try them out. We will also talk about when to use each of these, what kinds of projects work best for each, and what materials work best.


Please bring your sewing machine’s user manual if you have it!
