What you'll learn in this beginner sewing class:

Get introduced to the basics of sewing, then sew your own tote bag, all in one day!

This project-based, one-time three-hour beginner sewing class teaches you sewing basics and will have you threading a machine, loading a bobbin and sewing straight or curved seams in no time. You'll receive careful explanations and step-by-step instructions to assemble your project. And in three short hours later...you’ll walk out the door with a tote bag made by you in a day (1/2 a day really!)

This is the perfect workshop for all you super busy people who've always wanted to learn to sew, but just can't find the time for a long class. It’s also a great stepping-stone for one of our other class offerings.

Students should​ bring cotton or denim fabric for a customized bag (bring 1 yard) or skirt (bring 2 yards). All other equipment and sewing supplies are available for use.

I took Daniel's class this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed his teaching style. I liked that he kept us engaged and did the 'musical' chairs on different seats. His use of layman's terms made it so easy for me to remember the sewing basics. He gave practical information that we can use for life! - Princess

The class was great! Wish it was clear that we would need to bring our own fabric or pay $10. I completely missed that. Otherwise everything was great!

Attended: Learn to Sew in a Day: Tote Bag (Manhattan)
Theoretically a zero, because the teacher never showed up or contacted me (after I had travelled an hour to get to Brooklyn), and the school didn't know why. Very frustrating. Caveat emptor.
