Sewing and Pattern Drafting courses

I am pleased to announce that I will be offering summer courses in my Ottawa home studio. I offer an alternative to taking lengthy part-time classes and I teach what you want to learn. Courses are offered in french or english and can be paid on a daily basis.

  • Basic sewing course

Choose one of the following patterns (pj bottom/top, skirt, drawstring pant/capris) and we'll go through the steps together. You'll learn the patterns symbols and terminology, measuring techniques, assembly, interfacing/facing, pressing technique and finishing. I can also teach you alteration techniques and tricks.

  • Basic serger course

Learn how to properly thread your serger. Learn all the different stitches with 3 threads and 4 threads. Sew a few examples (tshirt, tank top..) using only the serger.

  • Pattern drafting course

Learn how to draft your own patterns using standard blocks. Learn how to alter your pattern after a fitting. Grading for commercial purposes also available.

  • Kids/teen sewing camp

Kids camp days are available for July and August only. Courses will begin at 9am and finish around 3pm with a half hour lunch (after/pre care also available). Student will learn the basic requirements to sew and will hopefully be able to complete 2 projects per day. Prior sewing experience is not necessary. Student will be required to bring their own sewing machine and materials . Maximum of 3 kids per day.

A student's list of bring-to-class supplies will be provided upon request. You can also view my studio here. Please contact me for more information.

**Please note: no classes will be given in SUMMER of 2009 **
