NYC 6-Week Course | Beginner Sewing for Adults
The Mood U 6-Week Beginner Sewing Course for Adults is a set of six (6) consecutive weekly in-store classes designed to teach you basic home-sewing machine operating skills, pattern layout, fabric cutting, sewing construction, and finishing techniques.
Your first sewing project is our popular Mood U Tote Bag. Each week we focus on a different stage of your project, and by the end of the 6-week session you will have completed your own customized Mood U Tote Bag from start to finish. From this single project you will have built a solid foundation of sewing skills and techniques to prepare you for our intermediate sewing class where you will learn the basics of garment construction.
