Fall classes in Rosendale!

my Spring series of local classes at Rosenspace went so well, i’ve lined up a few more for Fall! first up (and zooming up super-quickly!) is my ever-popular Befriend Your Sewing Machine on Saturday, September 9 from 1-4.

BYSM is a low-commitment (one-session) kick-start or refresher for your sewing skill set. Make Your Own T-shirt is a great intro to pattern-drafting and sewing with knits, and will be held on 4 Thursday evenings (6-8pm) September 28, October 5, (skips the 12th), October 19 and 26. the third of the Fall series will be Make Your Own Leggings, an all-day session on Sunday, November 12. stay tuned for details on the last two!

these will all be held at RosenSpace, 402 Main Street (ground floor), Rosendale NY 12472 (behind The Big Cheese coffee shop). to register, or if you have any questions, email me at cal@hodgepodgefarm.net. all classes will require payment in advance, and a minimum number of students to run. registration deadline for all classes is one week before the start date.

Befriend Your Sewing Machine
Saturday 9/9, 1-4pm
One 3-hour class, $60
Do you have a sewing machine in your closet, but have never used it? Or you want to sew, but the last time you stitched anything up was in Home Ec class in 8th grade? If you are looking for a low-commitment class to get acquainted with your machine (or reacquainted with the art of sewing), this is the one for you! In this 3-hour session, you will learn how to thread your machine and wind a bobbin, sew a simple seam, and hem edges. You will make either a pillowcase, tote bag, or drawstring pouch. From this start you’ll have a foundation for moving on to all kinds of sewing projects, and your machine may just become your very BEST friend!
