Adult Classes

 

Adult students learn how to sew progressively in 7-levels with the easy You Can Make It® program. The program works on the theory that you must first learn the alphabet before you can learn to read. 

The same is true with sewing; you must learn the basics first.

 

At Making It SewFun, all aspects of sewing are taught from foundational sewing skills in Level 1 and progressing to tailoring in Level 7. We'll also teach you how to "fit" by customizing any sewing pattern based on your personal body variation(s) to meet your specific need. Your skill level and knowledge will grow as you advance through the program with each project which increases in complexity. By the time you complete Level 7, you'll be considered an experienced sewist.

Students may join at any level with teacher approval. However, it is recommended that most students begin with Level 1 which is designed for the beginner or students in need of a refresher. Experienced sewist can also enroll in "Open Sewing" classes in which students will receive expert advice and direction on any sewing project of their choosing.
