What's Included

In our Sewing 101 course you will learn the essential skills of sewing: how to use a sewing machine, basic pattern reading and sewing construction while creating a simple, A-Line tank or a fully-lined tote bag. We will begin by using muslin for this class, (provided for your use) and will move toward a finished project in the fabric of your choice. In order to fully complete the 2nd project you will most likely need to come in for Open Studio hours. If you would like to bring your own fabric, we can provide you with the specific guidelines for purchasing a fabric for this pattern. // Instructor: Jamie Lau www.jamielaudesigns.com

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 

 

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
