Course Schedule

This course is available via Live Virtual Sessions on Zoom or In-Person Sessions. You must choose one or the other, but NOT both. All courses are held at scheduled times, however your online materials are available when it is convenient for you! You can log in anytime, day or night. 

Please submit a registration request for class availability.

Class in one day per week for 6 months. You will attend class on the same day at the same time each week.

Class Size

Due to the Covid-19 variants and the need to socially distance, I will no longer offer group classes until it is safe. I teach from my home and the sewing space is not large enough for groups to socially distance.

At this time, I will only allow one student at a time UNLESS the students live in the same household. In the event that you would like to book class with no more than two household members (ex. siblings, parent & child), please contact me directly for instructions.

Materials Needed

Many of the materials will be available for in-person classes only, however it is a good idea to start purchasing your own to have at home. A sewing materials list will be sent to you prior to the first day of class. For in-person sessions, a sewing machine will be provided, however you are welcome to bring your own. Sewing patterns will be provided for both in-person and virtual sessions. If the pattern does not fit your individual size, please choose a size from the provided pattern to sew.

This sewing class does not cover pattern grading. That subject is a bit too advanced for beginners. Fabric WILL NOT be provided, but your pattern will have instructions on what type of fabric to buy and how much to buy.

If you are wanting a home machine that is great for adults and children, I recommend the Brother Sewing and Quilting Machine, CS6000i. It has 60 Built-In Stitches, 7 styles of 1-Step Auto-Size Buttonholes, Wide Table, Hard Cover, LCD Display and Auto Needle Threader
 
This is the machine we will use in class.

Covid-19 Precautions

In-person classes are held in my home located in downtown Fort Worth. I am FULLY vaccinated, but I will require ALL STUDENTS to wear a mask the entire session (no exceptions). I will also wear a mask. This is to protect myself, my family and you!

Billing

Courses are automatically billed monthly for 6 months. However, if you would like to pay for the full 6 months upfront, please choose this option when submitting your payment.

Depending on the payment method you choose, your initial payment may be captured immediately or an invoice will be emailed to you immediately. If you notice that your card was not billed upon class registration, please check your email inbox for the invoice. You can pay your invoice securely online via Intuit.

If you experience any issues with payment, please open a support ticket for assistance.

    Felicia Ray is the absolute best! I cannot say enough positive things about her. She’s very detailed and passionate about teaching.. She’s extremely organized and truly gifted at what she does. She offers many additional tools to help with the process and definitely goes out of her way to ensure her students are getting what they need. I would highly recommend booking with her without hesitation you won’t be disappointed. And to top it off she provides a warm, comfortable and supportive work environment.

    I highly recommend Ms. Felicia Ray for any of your sewing needs. I have learned so much about sewing is such a short time span and feel confident after every session. I gained respect for seamstresses and clothing because it’s hard work but very rewarding work.
