Zippered Pouch - Beginner Sewing Workshop

Zippered Pouch - Beginner Sewing Workshop


Learn how to thread, operate, and trouble shoot a sewing machine in the first half of this workshop. After a short lunch break, you’ll put your new skills to use by making one or more zippered pouches in the fabric of your choice.

You’ll gain confidence with the machine through plenty of sewing practice to get you comfortable. You’ll also learn tips and tricks for sewing strait and even, and try out 5 different seam types and a hem. Whether you’re interested in making your own clothes, or home goods, or bags, this is the prefect first step.

No previous sewing experience required. All materials and machines provided

Instructor: Jane Kennedy

Saturday, May 11th 10am - 3pm (we will break for lunch)

Jane has been sewing professionally for nearly 20 years. Her widely varied job experience, as well as many years spent as a patternmaker, gives her a broad knowledge of garment creation.  Her experience ranges from making custom wedding gowns, to tailoring Chanel suits for the editor of Vogue, to making body armor for the US Military, to sewing lingerie for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. 

While her background is in couture sewing techniques, her practical approach to teaching sewing makes it accessible and fun for everyone. 

 “If you want to be fussy and perfect, that’s great. If you want to just get through it and prove to yourself you can make something with your own hands, I’m down with that too. And if you want to ask a million questions, I applaud your thirst for knowledge and will happily answer them.”
