Question from anonymous
Hello, is this class safe for someone who can only stitch a straight stitch? Other than properly threading my machine, I know nothing else. Is this class good for me?
Answer from Billy C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hello, Garment Workshop is a lecture/demo class covering any number of garment sewing techniques. If the customer is interested in learning about garment construction this is a good class to take. Even for a beginning sewer, or someone who can only sew a straight stitch, this class is beneficial. Our instructors teach on a beginner to intermediate level, so really any experience level sewer will fit.
