Does your next fun project include a zipper, bias tape or piping? these techniques can throw you, especially if you have not used them in a while. How about a refresher class that brings you up to date on the latest techniques and gives you the basics to help make our projects a success.
Zippers- Have you ever wondered the differences between a standard and sport zipper or zipper by the yard vs a precut length? How many different ways are there to sew a zipper in a bag or garment? What are the differences between a standard vs a sport or single pull vs a double pull or a separating zipper and when do I use which zipper?
Bias Tape- Have you had difficulty making the bias tape for your masks? What size do I cut the fabric strips for the size I need? Does it need to be cut on the bias? Which bias tape maker do I use? How do you use the bias tape maker? Why make your own bias tape vs prepackaged?
Piping- How do you make your own piping? Which size cording do you use? Which sewing machine foot is the best to sew on piping? Do you always need to cut the fabric strips on the bias for piping? Can you use piping for bags? How do you sew piping? Can piping be sewn along with a zipper?
All the above and much more will be discussed in this hands on class. Samples will be completed and written descriptions will be provided during class. Supply list is required, see list. This class is for beginners to experienced sewers.
