When I saw this class advertised in the Sierra Sewing Center flyer, I jumped at the opportunity. There are very few sewing classes available in Reno and even fewer for garment sewing (most classes are geared towards quilters or embroidery).

I really learned a lot in this class. It covered Hong Kong seams, french seams, flat-felled seams, tailored seams, Hong Kong hems, machine blind hems, double-fold hems, baby hems, and twin-needls hems for t-shirts. For each type of seam or hem, each student created a sample using our own swatches and machines after a demo by the instructor. The instructor provided us each with a notebook with descriptions of each seam and hem and a place to store our completed samples.

This class was great because I was able to try several new techniques that I would have been too afraid to try on my own. Now I will feel more confident when trying one of these techniques on an actual garment.

I live in Reno too! I went to Sierra Sewing to see the dates scheduled for the class. It was the only one on seams offered for this quarter. I am glad you posted on it. I will check it out in the future. Your review was great. Thanks.

Linda, If you get yourself on Sierra Sewing's mailing list you will receive the schedule for the next round of classes. I think this one filled quickly!

Karen, thank you so much for your review of my class. I love teaching elements of garment construction and it's wonderfull when someone has really enjoyed my class and taken the time to say so. Please tell the staff at Sierra Sewing what types of garment classes you would like to attend. It's very helpful to me in planning future classes. Thanks again, Michelle Gillmartin

It's November 2008 and I'd like to give my daughter basic sewing lessons for Christmas. Does anyone know of quality classes in Reno, NV??
