Sewing classes for homeschooler's will be offered again this year. Both beginning and intermediate classes will be available, depending on enrollment.
Class day and times are still being determined. Friday
morning/afternoon, at the Morris Center, worked well last year, so I
will continue to make that an option. Classes would meet during and
around band, orchestra, and choir. If there is enough interest, a class
could be offered on Tuesday afternoons - during TLC, or Wednesday
afternoons - also at Community Bible Chapel.
Each class will meet once a week for approx. 75 minutes. The class fee
is $95.00 a semester. Classes will start in mid September and run
through November. Given that we don't have to take days off for illness
or weather - we should complete the course work by the end of November.
It would be my desire to not go into December, but we will if necessary. Second semester would begin mid January and go through late April.

The classes will cover hand and basic machine sewing. We will do one
or two simple projects that will involve straight machine stitching. To
get the most from the class, the students will need to practice newly
learned techniques at home.
There will be worksheets, general
sewing practice, and project work to be completed outside of class.
Assigned work is due the following week. A notebook, with all the
weekly assignments, notes, vocabulary, worksheets, etc. will be turned
in at the end of the semester.
Each student will need sewing supplies, a one-inch binder, a portable
sewing machine that can be brought to class each week, and
fabric/notions/etc. for an assigned project.
These classes will continue where the beginning level left off. There
will be more seam finishes and hand sewing techniques covered, as well
as basic garment construction. One or two projects will be completed
in this class. The format of this level will be much like the
beginning level – worksheets, practicing new and old techniques, and
project work to be done outside of class. We will continue to add to
the notebook that was started in the beginning level.
Contact me with questions by phone or email.
There will be a minimum and maximum number of students per class offered.
