Sewing Basics

September 7, 2016

LHS offered 3 Clothing and Textiles classes this semester.  The classes are full with 45 novice sewers enrolled.  Students were introduced to terminology they will encounter when preparing articles that involve sewing skills.  Students also need to be savvy with a ruler.  They have been practicing reading seam gauges, measuring tapes and rulers.  Sewing equipment is being identified and used.  Students will be measuring and cutting fabrics for seam samples.  Projects that will be completed are 9 and 4 block pillows, pillowcases, pajama pants, crocheting and starting a community quilt.
