If you want to tackle a new project, but need some help, this class is for you! Whether you need help cutting your fabric, installing a zipper, sewing darts or reading directions, bring your pattern and fabric and we will help you out! Please let us know ahead of time what pattern you would like to work on.
You can work on garments, quilting, home decor, bags and accessories, sewing with knits, sewing zippers, or dolls and stuffies. Since there are multiple students and projects in the class, the instructor is there to assist. If you would like personalized attention for a project like pattern drafting, fitting, alterations or learning a specific technique, please consider a private lesson.
If you don’t see a good time or want more individualized attention, you can also set up a private lesson.
Students should have knowledge of how to operate the sewing machine. If you have never sewn before, please consider taking the Get To Know Your Machine
Students of all levels and interests are welcome. We limit the class to 4-5 students so everyone has access to one on one instruction. We have found that this format allows students to work on projects that interest them at a time that is convenient and work at their own pace.
Need help picking a project? We love helping students decide what to make! Feel free to visit us before your class and we can help you pick patterns and fabric.
Don't know what to make? That’s fine too! We can help you get set up with a simple project like a zipper pouch, pillows, napkins etc. We have lots of samples if you are not sure what to make.
In addition to instruction on your project, students get to learn from each other and get ideas for other things to work on.
You also get access to lots of sewing tools, cutting space, sewing machines with many different feet, sergers and coverstitch machines. Give those garments and knits a truly professional finish! See a list of amenities.
