30 Minute Intro Hand Sewing Class

30


30 simbi per session - Virtual OK

Thirty minute beginner's hand sewing class. Will teach you to hand sew a garment of your choice (shirt, dress, skirt, quilt square, throw pillow, or bring your own project to start). I subscribe to a method of sewing known as "no hassle" sewing which strives to use the most of the fabric available with the least amount of seams. This can also be used for making your own patterns. If the class is taken online you must provie you own needle, thread, and fabric. "Buying" of the class may be used to have me create a custom pattern and how to for intermediate level crafter's projects.

Simbi price is per attendee if held in person but can be used one for a group if done online. Kids welcome. Great activity for sleepovers. Can be done to a theme at no additional charge, themes available include superhero, fairy princess, or tea party.

Training & Qualifications


I have many years of experience doing classes and making custom costumes and quilts by hand. Taught by my hippy great depressioner grandmother. For pictures of my work you can visit facebook.com/cosplaybycandice

Availability & Preferences


I am available for these sessions Thursdays before 4:30, Fridays after 2:00, and all weekend.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Candice is soooo adorable!! I had fun learning about hand sewing and how to pattern a shirt from her. I'm excited to try these new techniques out. ...She showed me a few hand stitches to use to finish off garments and attach pieces. It will be a while before I can pattern and put together clothes like she does but I'm totally inspired to do so!!show more

Candice was excellent to work with; sadly I couldn't get my D&D group to hold up their end of the deal.

About Candice Potts

Looking for new experiences. I work at a Graduate Assistantship for Cal U's Department of Success most of the week but love to always be moving and working. I'm getting my master's degree in school co...unseling to hopefully one day be middle school counselor. My main experience is in middle and high school success coaching, tutoring, and school counseling but a girl's got to have her artistic hobbies as well. I love teaching and working with children of all ages. I have tutored students in math and English for many years. I hold certification in CPR, First Aid, Aquatic Observer, Archery (Level 2), and hold all PA clearances on record. My goal is to give everyone I meet the resources to do whatever it is they want to do. Nothing a simple as knowledge should hold you back. I trade for services that I need, lessons that I want, and cute gifts for my eight nieces and nephews back in Michigan. I'm waiting for Simbi to get big so I can get car repair and haircuts and such on here. I also love nerdy art to further decorate my home nerdvana. My boyfriend also uses my Simbi to get help developing his new tabletop game system called So You Want to Be a Badass?. My most popular Simbi services deal with sewing. I learned to sew costumes and such by hand from my grandmother when I was young. I love doing custom commissions and recycling old garments and such to make quilts and new stuff. I even make waterproof fabric of my own out of recycled grocery bags. show more
