This intermediate sewing class will cover how to sew zippers two ways. Participants will learn how to draft a zipper pouch onto cotton fabric, cut it out and sew it up in one evening. We will
also cover how to sew a concealed zipper in a garment or cushion cover. We will do this as a sample, not an actual cushion or skirt. Sewing machines and tools will be provided to all participants. If you would like to bring your personal machine that is fine, as long as it has a new needle, a bobbin, a zipper foot and is working and ready to go.
You will need to bring your own fabric and notions as listed below. Zippers and interfacing will be provided.
