Before Coming to Class:

  • Purchase your fabric. Please do not wait until the day of to purchase fabric! Please also ensure if you’re using fabric from your stash that you have the required yardage.
  • Trace your pattern on tracing material with all the markings and cut it out. (This is taught in Garments 101)
  • **Pre-wash your fabric**
    • If your fabric looks prone to fraying, zig zag stitch the cut edge before washing.
    • You want to make sure your fabric does all of it’s shrinking before sewing it into a garment so you don’t get weird pulling after your first wash. Use your best judgment, but generally you want to put it through a tough wash and dry cycle prior to sewing, and then care for it delicately post sewing.
    • Use a Color Catcher if you’re concerned about colors bleeding and running.
    • At the very least pre-wash your fabric as you’ll be washing it after it becomes a garment.
    • Take it out after drying immediately, block, iron, and roll so your fabric is wrinkle free and prepped for class
  • Don’t forget to pack a lunch or bring some cash for food!
