Projects will be based on student interest. Students will learn techniques for sewing woven fabrics. Gathers, pleats and ruffles, finished edges, zippers, pockets, embroidery, hand sewing techniques and beginning machine and hand quilting. If your favorite jacket could use a makeover add buckles, buttons, or other interesting elements - secret pockets!
