All levels: Beginning/Intermediate & ADVANCED Machine Sewing:

We pride ourselves on a low-pressure, casual, and creative atmosphere, making this the perfect opportunity to jump into sewing for the first time, or to become more proficient in your sewing expertise. This is a group class, therefore your project may or may not be completed in class. If you'd rather have a one-to-one lesson, please call us.
Beginning sewist?: Learn the basics of machine sewing in three hours...even if you’ve never threaded a needle before! How to wind the bobbin, thread the machine, and perform general maintenance while making one of several project options.
Intermediate/advanced sewis...t? Practice your skills and learn how to use a bias tape maker; learn to quilt; clone a favorite piece of clothing, or whatever you like — we will work with you. Intermediate sewists may work on any project you like — we are here to assist.
