One of the easiest ways to update your home's decor is to change the covers on your throw pillows. If you can sew a straight stitch and use a measuring tape, you can make them yourself, and Tinker can help you do that. In this class you will learn how to measure your pillow forms, how to select the right fabric, and how to draft and sew both envelope-style and zippered pillow covers.

After the first offering of this class on Feb 4, it will also be available as a Class on Demand.

Covering your windows with curtains or drapes can make a room feel cozy and complete, and local stores have a great selection of premade ones. But finding the ones that fit your windows (or your decor) may not be simple. In this course at Tinker, you will learn how to measure for your curtain/drape hem and how to sew the hem. You'll also learn how to make a simple curtain and a few easy variations.

Some might argue that you can never have too many pillows, and the same goes for pillowcases. The good news is that you can learn how to make pillowcases that look even better than the ones at the store. This project is beginner-friendly, and pillowcases can make great gifts. In this class at Tinker, you'll learn how to make a pillowcase with just 3 all-enclosed seams. This pillowcase is for standard size pillows (usually 20 inches x 26 inches), but we'll also show you how to adjust that for larger and smaller pillows.

After the first offering of this class on Feb 18, it will also be available as a Class on Demand.
