Garment Sewing


Some beginner classes rush you through a couple of simple projects. When you then try to do it on your own, you're lost. At Sew Right we've been teaching beginners for years and have developed the right format so that you'll understand it and can go home and do it on your own. Ruth has been teaching people to sew for over 30 years! Here's a chance for a beginning sewer to kick things up a notch! Start with a super simple design and learn how to combine a variety of fabrics to create a patchwork jacket and/or use those decorative machine stitches with fancy thread or trims for a custom design with bling! (Soft fabrics with drape will work best).

This is a wonderful opportunity to use our classroom space and cutting tables to work on your sewing or quilting projects independently. Staff will be available on a consulting basis, should you need assistance. To REGISTER, please call 718-468-5858.

If you've taken a class with Ruth before you know that it is equivalent to taking a professional class at FIT or better! A basic dress is a classic staple for every wardrobe. In this class, you'll learn how to select a dress pattern style that will work with your body type as well as one that offers features that permit easier fit. Ruth will focus on bodice-fitting as that is crucial to the look of your garment. It's time to work with necklines, armholes, facings, and darts. Ruth will share her years of teaching experience in helping you create a stunning simple dress.
