Intro to Sewing Class FAQ's

1 What age and skill level students can participate?

This class is suggested for anyone ages 8 to adult with basic machine sewing experience. Class will have a maximum of 16 students.

2It has been years since I used a sewing machine, is this the class for me?

This class will include some basic refreshers, but you may benefit from taking the Intro to Sewing 101 class as well. Taking both classes will really help build a solid foundation to build upon.

3Where is the class located?

The class will be held at Ranch House Clubhouse at Power Ranch, a community clubhouse in South Gilbert, AZ (Germann & Ranchhouse Parkway). The address is 4546 E. Haven Crest Dr. • Gilbert, AZ 85297.

4What supplies are provided in class?

The class includes a kit with fabric and notions to make one Classic Convas Tote.

Sewing tools such as irons, cutting mats, scissors, etc. are available to borrow in class (but if you have any of these items feel free to bring them).

5What do I need to bring?

SEWING MACHINE REQUIRED: Each person needs to bring a sewing machine in good working order. If you plan to enroll more than one person, but only have one machine per family we may be able to arrange to provide a rental machine.

OPTIONAL SEWING TOOLBOX: We have put together a beginner sewing toolbox which has some of the most essential tools and supplies you need in your sewing collection. This is not required for class, but if you really enjoy sewing this is a great starter kit.
