PROJECT FUNWAY - Which class is right for you?


PROJECT FUNWAY ADULT SERIES I


Want to know how to mend that pile of clothing? Put an original hem on your 

own jeans? Make a professional decorator pillow? Fix the hem on that favorite 

blouse? Sew on a button properly?

 

Dust off that sewing machine or use one of our machines and come learn the 

sewing basics. This class is designed for adults (and their daughters) who 

want to have “fun” while learning to sew. If your high school home economics class left you less than inspired, sign up for a PROJECT FUNWAY ADULT class to give learning to sew a new twist! This is a practical series created 

to offer practical skills and mold to what the student wants!

We will be focusing on basic sewing skills and using these skills to create a 

detailed tote bag that you would be proud to wear (or give as a gift)! 

As always, we calibrate to the skill level of individual.

Age 12+


PROJECT FUNWAY ADULT SERIES II


After completing the Adult Series I, this class is designed to up your game!  

We will learn to put an original hem back on jeans, create a designer pillow 

with piping, learn how to make simple curtains, perfect an invisible zipper, 

and other gift ideas.  You may take any of the sessions and a project will 

be 'tailor-made' for your abilities, desires, and skills.

Depending on time, we will give help with altering to fit a simple commercial pattern 

you bring to class.

Age 12+


CHRISTMAS GIFTS IDEAS CLASS


This class is geared for those students who have taken one of our basic 

classes and has a sewing machine.  We will be teaching a variety of gift 

ideas to sew and re-create for gifts.  Instructions and patterns will be 

available so the student can go home with the "know-how".  Pillows, 

aprons, cosmetic bags, jammie bottoms, ornaments, potholders, shoe bags, scarves, pillow cases, sleeping bag covers, etc, . . . too many ideas! 

I need to temper my enthusiasm!

Age 9+


FITTED SKIRT CLASS


If you have sewing experience and have mastered the basics, you can take 

this class.  I will help you draft an A-line or pencil skirt flat pattern and 

you will sew it in muslin so that you get the perfect fit for your body.  

Depending on time, you will be able to sew up a skirt in cotton with facing 

and/or lining, invisible zipper, and kick-pleat.  You will have the skills to 

knock out a beautifully lined skirt for the holidays - JUST YOUR SIZE!

Age 12+

2-DAY SKILLED INTERMEDIATE INTENSIVE COURSE


In two days, you will use a commercial sewing pattern to create a garment 

to fit!  From learning how to read a pattern, to making a fit "muslin", and

executing the proper construction of a garment - this class will be offering 

you a start-to-finish experience - one you can duplicate at home!   

Basic 101 skills are required.  


ADVANCED (301)  This class scheduled by request only.


This class is designed for proficient sewers who have the ability to read and 

follow a commercial pattern "with assistance".  We will start with a trip to 

the fabric store to pick out fabric and notions to complete a garment from 

start to finish.  This is compact session offered over 2 days (9a-4p) to 

allow for maximum learning and creativity.  The goal is to teach the skills 

needed to "sew on your own".  Materials included.

As always, PROJECT FUNWAY instructors calibrate the teaching 

individually; therefore, keeping each student challenged at "their" 

pace throughout the course of the week.
