Many students come knowing nothing or remembering little from that Home Ec experience in Middle School. Don’t worry, this is a great place for you to begin. You will be taught from square #1. No pressure to keep up with others, and plenty of encouragement.
The atmosphere at Laura’s Sewing School is positive and reinforcing. If one way works for another student, but understanding eludes you, we will try another way. There are many ways to accomplish the same result, the question is to find the one that works for you. The best way to learn is by doing and by repetition. Be patient, use the 4 foot rule and you will be fine. (The 4 foot rule is if you cannot see the problem from 4 feet away, it’s not a problem.)
We learn the most from mistakes, but we are not anxious to make any. Most mistakes in sewing can be undone. If everything goes perfectly in class, you won’t know how to troubleshoot when you are home, sewing on your own. So, making a mistake during class is to your advantage. You can be shown why the mistake happened and how to fix it and avoid making it in the future.
So, relax, have a cup of coffee, or tea, grab something to eat, take a break and get back at it. We are all here to learn something new, make new friends, find a new outlet for our creativity and have a good time. That’s my goal, I hope you will want to share in it.
