Alterations : Hemming Pants Like a Pro

Not sure what class to take after Intro to Sewing 2.0? How about learning to hem pants! Pants come in different syles and are made of different types fabrics. Hemming khakis will be different from hemming jeans and both of these are different from how to hem stretchy pajama bottoms. Join us as we learn to hem pants and use our sewing skills to improve our wardrobe.

In this class you will learn how to do a double fold hem, a blind stitch hem and a method of hemming that retains the original hem. You will learn tips on how to deal with bulky seams and what to do when you do not have the heavy-duty thread that was used on other portions of the pants. 

If bringing your home sewing machine, it would be helpful to bring all the extra presser feet and one or two extra bobbins.
