Sewing Bootcamp covers all the material from this class and Sewing 102.
Supplies Needed: We supply all fabric and the machines, using a simple Janome 2212 that transfers knowledge easily and can be purchased from retailers for under $150- and will come new and hassle free to set you up right! Please dont bring your own machine.
Teacher Bio:Maeve learned how to sew outfits for her stuffed bunnies when she was three and hasn't stopped sewing since. She recently studied pattern making and thinks clothes should be made to fit your body, not your body altered to fit standard sized clothes. Her favorite thing to make is something new. When Maeve's not sewing she's making terrariums that she slowly watches die or doing science experiments in the kitchen.
