Beginning Sewing Intensive Class
In this 6-week course students will learn basic sewing skills and machine know-how. You will take on four fun projects: Project 1: Learn to use your sewing machine while making a sweet tote bag. In this 2 1/2 hour session students will learn to wind a bobbin, thread the machine and gain a basic understanding of how a sewing machine works. Project 2: Learn to read a pattern and make a ruffled half-apron. Project 3: In two 2 1/2 hour sessions, you will learn to make a fitted, darted skirt with a zipper (the male alternative is any pattern with darts and a zipper). Project 4: Create the project of your choice.
No experience is necessary. Plan to bring your own machine and fabric scissors. If you do not have a machine, we have a few in the store available for use, but please specify at the time of registration. Machines are available on a first come first serve basis, so please register early. Review the full list of supplies here.
* Please note an earlier start time can be arranged if it works better for the group.

As June starts up and school draws to a close, we usually find ourselves looking for those ever-elusive gifts for dads and teachers. There’s no need to worry this Spring, as Abeille has gifts galore! For Father’s Day we have handmade cuff links, key chains, herb gardens or venus flytraps, leather-weaved bracelets and more.
For teachers we have handmade bookmarks so they can finally get to that book they’ve been waiting to read all year. For a more personal touch, there are felted soaps or try your hand at making them yourself with our kits or a class! Our front doors are wide open so be sure to swing by!
