Learn to sew!

 
Want to save money on custom home decor items?  Learn to sew them yourself!  Not only does learning to sew create a wonderful sense of accomplishment, but once you know the basics, you can create beautiful one of a kind projects for your home, as well as garments and gifts for yourself and others at a fraction of the cost of ready made items.
Classes are offered at your local Joann's store www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp , and for the rest of this year, I'll be teaching home decor sewing lessons and clothing projects at the Joann's store in Snellville. Day and evening classes are available. The number for the store is 770-972-9656. Just press #8 for the creative department and sign up!
In Home Decor Sewing 201: Table Decor, we will use Simplicity Pattern 5964, and learn to make placemats and table runners.  In Snellville, this class is taught in two-3 hour sessions on Thursday evenings from 6-9pm, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-1pm.The cost is $75 (supplies not included).  This class builds on Sewing 101 skills, (which I also teach) pattern reading, basic machine operations and students are advised on numerous design and fabric options, including using different fabrics to make the project reversible. 
Another offering for Home Decor Sewing 201 is the pillow making class.  We use McCall's pattern #M4410 where you will learn to create pillows for every room in your home.  You will select from eight different styles to mix and match.  I'll also show you how to embellish and personalize your projects.
Home Decor Sewing 201-Windows, uses Butterick pattern #B6109. You will learn how to measure your windows, and construct window treatments from six different tab top styles to create panels with your own unique fabric. 
Sewing is an extremely rewarding hobby and career.  Sewing classes are fun and relaxing.  Meet fellow sewers and get professional guidance while you learn and produce hand crafted items for your home.

    I am not an accomplished seamstress, but I do okay at sewing a straight line. It is nice to be even somewhat handy.
