IN PERSON: Sunday, July 14, 10AM - 3PM

Have you been eyeing that cute button shirt or pants pattern but you stop when you realize you'll need to do buttons, zippers or hems? Then this is the class for you! Build sewing confidence in this fun class focused on often needed, but often avoided, sewing skills.  This class is perfect for sewists both veteran and new looking to amp up their current skill set. You will go home with samples made in class and crib notes to help you get through your next project. Never again will you shy away from sewing projects with button, zippers, or hems!

In this class you will learn how to:

  • Install standard centered zippers
  • Create buttonholes and attach buttons
  • Learn how to hand stitch finish a hem

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You can thread a sewing machine and are interested in adding some basic skills to your repertoire. 

Supplies: We are providing everything you need!

If you are bringing your own sewing machine, this is a great opportunity to learn to use some of those attatchments that came with the machine but you have no idea what they are or how to use them. Your machine doesn't have those fancy things, no worries, there are many ways to do the same thing.

Sewing Machines: If you would like to use one of the sewing machines at Ace Makerspace (we highly recommend this for beginng sewists) please select the Use Ace Machine ticket. If you are comfortable and would like to use your own sewing machine please select the Use My Machine ticket. DO NOT purchase a Use My Machine ticket if you don't have a machine, it isn't working properly or you aren't comfortable operating it. We don't have extra machines you can use. If we have sold out of Use My Machine tickets, and you want to use your own machine, you may purchase a Use Ace Machine ticket.
