Basic Hand Sewing

with Merry Canillas


Class has begun

Sewing is a rewarding and handy art!

Being able to make something practical and fun at the same time is worth every bit of love and effort put into it. Start by covering tools, threads and fabrics and what to use with what, then on to the various kinds of stitches and how they are used. Learn to make and sew bias binding, buttons, snaps, blind hemming, etc. Create a pouch for your sewing kit, a cute pincushion, makeup bag and cell phone cover. Tuition includes additional tools and materials for all four projects.

Required: Basic sewing kit of sharp fabric scissors, pack of hand sewing needles and glass head pins, 6-12 inch metal ruler, pencil or marking pen.

Merry Canillas has been sewing since high school. She has a Dressmakers/Design diploma from Penn Foster and has worked in the bridal industry. She has run several sewing companies over the last 25 years and currently runs Hand Strands in Saco.
