Our adult class format is an open concept. 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.
You can work on garments, quilting, home decor, bags and accessories, sewing with knits, sewing zippers, dolls and stuffies, or basic mending. Since there are multiple students and projects in the class, the instructor is able to assist. If you would like personalized attention for a project like pattern drafting 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.
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.
Just want to show up? 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.
