New projects for all levels of stitchers

I am having a sewing spring even if the weather won't budge. I feel the creative juices flowing. I hope to make with all of you this season! A class of 3 students can be formed at any time - in your home  or at Wild Sage in Delmar:

In private lessons I have taught a 7 year old make a skirt on her brand new machine, a mom learn to hem her daughters pants, a women make new covers for her pillows. Get those machines out of the closet and out them to work to make something fun - or to get something crossed off your to- do list!
Some projects we will do this Spring:
Zippy pouches 
Tote bags
Elastic waist bubble skirt
Aline pullover dress
Guitar Pillow
Yoga mat bags
Doll clothes
Bean bags

Mom and me and doll pj party!

Event date : Saturday April 5, 2014
Time: 3-6pm
Where: Wild Sage Designs, Delmar
Cost: $20
Bring your own fabric, ( cotton, flannel ) 
machine rental $5 or bring your own.

Sew coordinating pj pants for you and your kid and their little best friend. Use it as an opportunity to tune up your sewing skills and introduce them to a great skill and creative outlet. Bond by making together! Once you learn how to make these easy pants you can make them again for the whole family! Bring craft paper to copy the pattern.

Creating Fashion on the Sewing Machine

This Friday starts an ongoing series of classes to teach Tweens and teens to use the sewing machine and patterns to make clothing, bags, accessories and decor. They will have a lot of personal instruction and a designers input on how to make things to suit their stylish expression. Nothing bets getting to create with others who share your passion with you. Lots of learning happens by watching others. And you get lots of deign ideas that way too!

Parent + Me: on the Machine!

Next class announced:
Sunday April 13, Sunday April 27, Sunday May 4th
3 sessions for $90
Must provide your own fabric and basic sewing kit.

Parent + Me Class - our last session was a HUGE hit. The details:
A 3 class tutorial for students 8 yrs + and their parent.  Learn how to use and troubleshoot a sewing machine, understand and practice its features, and make something using a pattern. Student can make pajamas with a matching pair for their dolls.  They should be working on the machine between class sessions to get the most out of the time in class (come with questions or problems to be answered, move pattern along to the next step)  Students must provide their own fabric, thread and notions. (Any specialized tool s will be provided.) A parent is asked to come to at least the first class of the session so that they too learn how to use the machine and help their child make it through the steps til they reach a very satisfying finished project! They have the enthusiasm to make and create, and now they can be more experienced and confident on your investment in a machine for them .
