+ How to cut your fabric and make all necessary markings
+ How to cut fabric pieces on the grain/bias
+ How to finish your raw edges
+ How to hem

The skills learnt in this one day class will prepare you to tackle other sewing patterns at home. 
If you don't yet feel confident using a sewing machine then a private Learn to Sew class is a good place to start, email us studio@thenewcrafthouse.com to find out more.
