Machine sewing is not only incredibly money-saving, but it also provides a tremendous sense of self-satisfaction, knowing that you did it yourself. In this class, which is a continuation of A Beginner's Guide to Machine Sewing, students will learn how to do the most common types of clothing alterations and repairs, which are taking in, letting out, shortening, lengthening, and hole darning. The instructor will guide students through the process of each of these types of alterations and repairs and give students step-by-step feedback as they attempt to do them in class. Please Note:  A basic, working knowledge of machine sewing, or having completed the Beginner's Guide to Machine Sewing course, is a prerequisite for this course. Students will need a sewing machine. A list of supplies will be provided prior to the first class.
