A supportive educational facility offering sewing and fashion design classes, 8-Limbs will set you on your way to crafting your own clothing, creating your own design ideas, making your own patterns, and more:
• $37 ($75 value) for a Sewing Machine Operation class
• $37 ($75 value) for a Build a Grocery Tote class
• $90 ($180 value) for a Clothing Construction class (levels I, II, or III)
In the Sewing Machine Operation class, you'll focus on learning the five basic machine settings, the needle system, how to correctly thread the machine, and other basic skills. It's a perfect class if you're looking for a basic refresher, or have never sewn before.
During Build a Grocery Tote, you'll use woven non-stretch fabric to construct a functional and reversible tote bag. You should bring pre-made tote straps to class, but you'll receive a demonstration of how to make straps from scratch. The techniques you'll learn are approachable for beginners, but the end-product is an impressive, high-quality lined tote suitable for daily use.
In Clothing Construction I, you'll build a lightweight woven tank top blouse for woman, or a tank top T-shirt for men. It's a great place to start if you have no experience with construction of clothing. Learn to spread fabric properly, trace and cut a pattern, and assemble a garment using a basic sewing machine. Patterns are provided in S/M and M/L men's and women's styles.
In Clothing Construction II, you'll learn how to build a men's, women's, or children's classic stretch-knit T-shirt. One T-shirt is created in this class with sleeves, collar trim, sleeves installed, and edges properly hemmed.
Clothing Construction III is an advanced study in garment engineering. While building a reversible basic T-shirt or a tank top, you'll challenge the mind to think in reverse when building.
