Three Little Birds Sewing Co.

VIRTUAL Learn to Sew Series for Adults

$ 145.00

In this five week VIRTUAL series, you’ll learn the very basics of how to use a sewing machine while continuing to expand your skills each week. Throughout the course, you’ll finish four projects and gain confidence in using a sewing machine, understanding sewing terminology, and learn how to read a sewing pattern.

Each class meets for approximately 2 hours. With the exception of the first class, you will receive a video lesson to watch prior to each class. We will then use the live Zoom sessions for demos and to address any questions you might have.
