Sewing Classes

 

We want everyone to learn how to sew! Our Sewing Basics will get you going, from learning your way around a sewing machine to using a pattern to create a pillow and a lined zippered pouch. 

Do you have a specific project you need help with? Or a busy schedule that interferes with weekly classes? Book a private lesson! Or a sewing evening with your friends. Compare schedules and give us a call to book a sewing session!

Before you book a session, please review our Class Payment and Cancellation Policy.
