Course Description: Sewing is both a fun and an educational experience. Whether it is making basic apparel repairs or creating a pillowcase, sewing is a tool that can be used throughout your life. Some of the items covered in this course will be: sewing machine parts and accessories, common stitches, cutting tools, measuring tape marks and rulers, various needle types for both sewing machines and hand stitching, types of thread for fabrics, choosing the right fabric, reading sewing patterns, hand stitches, embroidery stitches and sewing on buttons/hooks, how to sew a hem as well as several other topics. A few projects will be completed using the skills learned. This course will be taught by Ellie Schubert, a homeschool mom veteran. From an early age, sewing has been her passion and she has enjoyed sharing her knowledge with her children and grandchildren. (26 weeks/8-10 students)


Supplies included with fee:

24pg. instructional book, thread, variety of sewing pins, some fabric, seam ripper, measuring tape, seam gauge, variety of hand sewing needles, scissors, magnetic wand to pick up pins, glue, elastic, buttons, zippers, sewing clips, fusing material, bobbin covers, bobbin thread holders, magnetic pin cushion, embroidery hoop, and a storage box.


Students will need to supply:

• A sewing machine

• 5-10 bobbins that fit their machine

• Needle for sewing machine

• 1 extension cord

• On occasion, fabric for projects


For convenience, I would suggest purchasing a sewing machine carrying case on wheels. Wal-Mart and other stores have them. They start at around $40.00. If you need to buy a sewing machine, you should be able to find one at Amazon, Wal-Mart, Sam’s, Costco, etc. from $85.00- $200.00. Pick one that has high reviews and has a high number of people that have purchased them. Such as the Brother Sewing Machine, XM2701 ($85.00), or the SINGER | Heavy Duty 4423 ($159.99)
