Sewing 102: Don't Fear the Zipper!



In this two hour workshop you'll learn two different methods for installing zippers.

We'll first learn how to install a exposed zipper for our large zip pouch. Then we'll learn how to do a hidden zipper for our pencil pouches. We'll go over how to get nice neat corners that aren't pinched, beautiful top stitching to give your project a professional look, and options for customizing your future zipper projects.

After class you'll know two methods that you can apply in a variety of sewing projects like throw pillows, garments, and bags!

This is a intermediate sewing class.

Students should have taken our Sewing 101 course and/or be comfortable with the following:

Threading the machine and winding the bobbin
Maintaining a consistent seam allowance
Right Side and Wrong Side of fabric
Pressing with an iron and applying interfacing

Overall be familiar with and comfortable operating a sewing machine

All of the needed supplies and materials are included in the class fee. Students will select fabrics from our Fat Quarters (you are welcome to bring your own fabric.) We will use our classroom machines and the included zipper foot. We'll go over how this might look different on your home machine and how to adjust.
