Happy new year from all of us at Modern Domestic. May your year be delightful and full of rewarding sewing adventures.
A new year brings a fresh batch of sewing classes! We’ve got exciting classes to get you rolling out quilts and clothing for you and your friends. Take a look on our Webstore for more class information.
Tips to getting the most out of Modern Domestic classes:
1. Shop before your class.
Be sure look at your supply list and check off everything you need prior to your first class. This way you know what to bring, and we know you are ready to go before your class starts. We don’t want you to rush picking out your fabrics or miss the beginning of your class. If you would like help picking out fabric for your class please feel free to call, email or come in and shop a few days before your class. We make every effort to stock all class supplies, but shop early to make sure you get what you need.
2. Pick classes for your skill level.
We love that you are excited to sew! You will be mastering complicated techniques before you know it! In the mean time, go at your own pace and choose classes that work for you. All Learn to Sew classes are made for those who have never used a sewing machine before. If you’d like to jump into something more involved, try a beginner class. Learn details about each skill level here.
3. Do your homework.
This one sounds obvious. If you are signed up for a class that requires some homework, do it. This will keep you on schedule to finish your project on time and build your confidence. Plus, it will make you the favorite student in class.
4. Be proud of yourself.
Don’t compare yourself to your classmates, we are all at different skill levels. Be proud of where you are at. The best thing about sewing classes is that you are learning skills to apply in future projects. You will not only take away a finished product (that YOU made), but also new techniques, skills and rules that will change your sewing experience. Think of your class as an investment: all your future sewing projects will benefit in the long run.
5. Utilize the best tools.
Don’t worry about bringing your own tools or sewing machine to class, we’ve got you covered. The best tools are available to you in every class at Modern Domestic. We provide BERNINA sewing machines and kits complete with all the supplies you’ll need. If you are interested in familiarizing yourself on our machines prior to your class, stop in for some independent sewing time during Open Sew hours.
6. Take advantage of your discount!
While registered for our classes you receive 10% off all purchases for the duration of your class! Shop all fabric and notions with a sweet discount.
