What to expct.....

Garment sizing fluctuates from brand to brand, but with this class you will be taught how to make adjustments so that your garments fit properly regardless of the brand. In addition, this class will also teach you how to repair and alter garments that have not been worn due to a broken zipper, split seam, lost button, torn lining or some other problem.  Bring your garments and Pamela Dake will teach you how to fit and repair them in this class.  All students are required to know how to operate a sewing machine and have basic sewing skills.  Shawn’s Sewing Center will provide the sewing machines and sergers, so the only items you are required to bring are notions and supplies you probably already own.
