About the Event

We can't wait to see you at our first In Person class since closing the studio! And, we're keeping the class small so you'll get loads of attention. We've added an online prep session to so you can maximize your in person class. We will be meeting at Ace Makerspace in their completely outfitted sewing studio. 

The Cielo Top has a comfortable fit and some interesting features that make it a great addition to any wardrobe. We'll only be making View A in this class and you'll leave with the skills to fill your closet with all the Cielo options.

This class has two sessions:

  • ONLINE - Thursday, May 5th, 6:30 - 7:30pm. Beth will review everything you need to know and do before coming to class on Saturday. She will talk about the pattern, how to chose the correct size, fabric selection and walk you through cutting out a pattern. This will be recorded, please watch it before the in person class if you can't attend the live session.
  • IN PERSON - Saturday, May 14th, 10am - 3pm. 

In this class, you learn how to:

  • Cut out a pattern
  • Make simple pattern adjustments
  • Lay out the fabric
  • Properly pin the pattern pieces
  • Cut out and mark your fabric
  • Sew with a proper seam allowance
  • Set a sleeve
  • Tips and tricks for better and faster sewing

Skill level: ✂️

You've seen a sewing machine before, but you've never played with one, or if you have given it a try, you'd really love a little extra help to make sure you're doing it correctly.

Supply List: We will send you a complete supply list, including fabric recommendations once you've registered for class.
