A Needle Pulling Thread: Hand Sewing Basics

Sunday, May 15th, 1-4 pm

Does the thought of a thimble make you a-tremble? Fear not! Hand sewing can be one of the most meditative and relaxing pursuits in our sewing room, and can even be portable enough to take our latest project to jury duty (ask me how I know).

Join us to learn basic sewing techniques that will have you mending or hand sewing a garment, or attaching a missing button with ease – as well as tips and tricks for hand-finishing to make the loyal sewing machinist’s life easier. Skills include thimble technique, starting and stopping your stitching cleanly and securely, and deciding which stitch to use when – and why. You’ll go home with a stitch sampler you made yourself and lots of fun facts about hand sewing.

Included Class Materials:
Stitch sampler worksheet
Muslin fabric to practice stitching on

Student Provides:
Sewing needles/sharps (#10 are great)
1 spool of thread in your favorite color (silk, cotton, or polyester all work)
Thread snips or sharp scissors
A thimble (recommended but not required)
A beeswax cake or other thread conditioner (recommended but not required)

 

About the Instructor:

Megan Arteaga of Megan Sews
Megan is the self-styled “seamstress next door,” and sewing and crafting is in her DNA! She learned from the best (machine work from Mom and hand-stitching from Dad), and after college really started taking a higher-end approach to sewing and mending, with a focus on sustainability. She started Megan Sews a few years ago and is thriving by word-of-mouth in her neighborhood. Her day job as a Youth Minister means she’s honed her teaching skills on some tough audiences, and is always ready to share a “fun fact” or three with anyone who will listen. If she’s not at her sewing machine or at the church, you can probably find her dancing hula, out on a run, or in the garden.
