These classes cover the basic building blocks of sewing since all sewing is based on the same basic techniques and knowledge.  These classes takes a fresh approach to sewing by giving students time to practice each sewing building block multiple times.  The sewing drills are on cotton fabric and manufactured garments.  Students do not make a finished product which helps students to relax and really learn the sewing techniques without the pressure of sewing perfectly.  “ Basic Sewing: For the Newbie” is a prerequisite for the other classes (You can skip this class with permission from the instructor).  The other 3 classes can be taken in any order.
