Description

Removing the sewing machine from the equation transports your sewing practice into the meditative realm of handwork (like knitting, crochet, and embroidery) and means you can stitch up garments whenever you have a few spare minutes in your day, or on the couch at night while watching a movie, and carry a project with you so you always have it. Amazingly, you might find you can finish a hand-sewn garment sooner than a machine-sewn one!

We will work up a sampler of basic hand-sewing techniques: how to sew seams, finish necklines and hem edges, using only your hands and a needle and thread. Several methods for each type of seam will be shown, and on future projects you can use your new skills in combination with machine sewing or entirely on their own
