  1. I am interested in construction but I am not a beginner. What Jackie’s Construction class cover?

    • In the Absolute Beginning Construction class, students create four projects:
      the first week, the project is a zippered pouch
      the second week, it is a tote bag
      the third week, it is a skirt made of a woven fabric
      the fourth week, it is a shirt made out of a knit fabric

      In making all of these projects, students come away with all the basic clothing construction techniques that can then be used to go on and create other projects on their own. Though the class is set-up to teach students with no sewing experience, it is also great for seamsters with experience who might want a few more tools in their toolboxes. If you feel like you don’t need to learn any basic techniques, you might consider taking the Freeform Sewing Clinic, which is for more experienced seamsters who want to absorb information while working on their own projects.

      I hope this is helpful!
