Good Beginning Sewing Class

My intention is to update this review once I am done with the class, so this review will update, but so far so good. I attended my first class today at Sew Images with Cecilia Franklin. I registered for the class super last minute by calling Cecilia the day before the start date and she was able to fit me in.

Cecilia is pleasant and the class I am in consists of 8 women, all 30-40 age range. The class that I am taking is called Beginning Sewing I : From the Start. This is a 5 classes series that consists of a weekly 3 hour class from 6pm - 9pm. The class in 5 parts costs $175 (not including materials, which you would have to purchase yourself) consists of:

Class 1: Sewing and general concepts
Class 2: How to read pattern, marking and cutting patterns, and custom fitting.
Class 3: Sewing machine, sewing seams, finishing seams.
Class 4: Pressing techniques and pressing tools
Class 5: Finish sewing project

The series consists of making of a garment from patterns, and we are not expected to touch a sewing machine until the 3rd class.

There is a lot of learning -- about fabrics, patterns, and cuts. Thus far what I find the most interesting thing I have learned is why clothes don't fit and how to make adjustments. It is an eye-opening experience for me to take this class. Cecilia is very organized and knowledgeable -- you will learn things in her class that won't be found in your regular beginning sewing book.
