Sewing Course being offered at Saint John Arts Centre

Have you been meaning to make time for yourself to enjoy the hobby of sewing? Is it time to look at your sewing machine with a new perspective? Master your fear of the machine and become more comfortable with its use and care.

In this six-week sewing course you’ll learn fundamental skills that you will apply to the project of your choice. We will begin with basic layout and cutting techniques as well as reading and interpreting commercial patterns and developing skills to complete your fabulous, stylish clothing or home decor. This is also an excellent class to learn basics of quilt-making.

Whatever skill level, whether beginner, intermediate or the complete novice who would like an evening out to focus on a sewing project and gain more confidence, this course is for you!

Participants should choose a project that they feel that they are comfortable beginning with at their skill level and should be able to accomplish in the five-week time frame, or be able to finish at home.
