Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are not accepting any class registrations at this time.

In this two-day class, students will learn how to use professional workroom equipment including industrial straight stitch, walking foot, overlock and blind hemming machines, grommet and button press, pneumatic staple guns and worktables.


Students will learn how to cut and join fabrics, finish hems, set grommets, use an air compressor and staple guns, and make covered buttons. Included in this class is an overview of common workroom supplies that are needed to get a workroom up-and-running such as, lining and interlining, buckram, weights, thread, welt cord, scissors, measuring tools and tips for organizing a small workroom.


Class discussions include advice and resources for setting up a workroom business, sales and marketing.

The information learned in this class is necessary for taking Level I fabrication classes.
