Sewing pattern basics-Bring in a pattern you would like to sew (we suggest an “easy” to “medium” difficulty) and learn what all the pattern notes mean, then get hands on help sewing it together in class. You’ll need all the materials listed on the back of the pattern for the size or model you want to make. You’ll also need to bring your sewing machine (machines are available for borrowing at the Center but they cannot be taken home), scissors, pins, a chalk marking pencil, and a seam ripper.

Angharad Caceres is a lifelong crafter and until recently the owner of the Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica. Beginning with the Campfire group she belonged to in elementary school, she has dabbled in a huge variety of crafts (many of them glue gun dependent) but especially enjoys those that create objects with purpose. Bookbinding, soapmaking, knitting, and sewing are at the top of her list. Teaching has always been a part of her life, from the 4th and 5th grades she taught in Portland, Oregon, to the classes she ran at the Urban Craft Center, she is dedicated to sharing her knowledge and passion for making.
