Have you ever wanted to sew your own curtains, bedding, clothing, or accessories? Are you a little intimidated—but curious—about your sewing machine? Never fear! Machine sewing is simple, fun, relaxing, and super rewarding—imagine getting compliments on a new shirt or a new pillow on your couch, only to reveal that you made it yourself!

My name is Blair and I'm a home sewist who's been making clothes, costumes, and gifts since I was in middle school. I learned on my mother's trusty Bernina sewing machine, which I still use to this day to design and sew my own dresses, skirts, pants, and jumpsuits.

Here's what we can cover together:
  • The basic parts of a sewing machine
  • How to start, stop, and reverse
  • How to thread a sewing machine
  • How to create a bobbin
  • How to sew a straight seam
  • How to sew a zigzag seam
  • Picking the right stitch type for your material
  • How to sew a zipper
  • How to select a pattern and material
  • How to read and follow pattern instructions
  • How to make simple projects like pillow covers, curtains, and zipper pouches
And more! If you have particular questions, we can tailor (get it?) the session to your needs and desires.
