Beginner Projects – This level is where you can have as much fun as you want. These project classes are designed to be forgiving, as a beginner, your instructor knows that having a straight seam line is hard. These project allow for a bit of ‘forgiveness’ if your seam line goes a bit astray. You will finish with a project you can be inspired, proud and show off to all your loved ones, perhaps even gifted to a that special person in your life.
Intermediate Classes – Your sewing journey has brought you to a destination of amazing growth. This is where your skill is challenged and your projects become passions. Forgiveness isn’t quite so easy to find, if your seam line is uneven, you can visually see it, and your seam ripper is the only answer. These classes often have homework.
