This weekly sewing class is great for introducing any beginner to the world of sewing. Hand and machine skills will be covered. There will be a specific activity with materials provided and students who become proficient can choose their own projects. We will cover sewing tools, machine basics, machine and hand sewing techniques, fabric basics and more. (If you have your own sewing machine it's good to bring it, or we have some to use.)
All Ages (under 9 must come with an adult)
A fun hour of creativity for kids who are not in school yet, accompanied by an adult. There is a different project each week with exciting and varied materials, designed to be fun for both children and adults. Kids experience different materials, creative problem solving, and skills that will serve them later when entering school.
Ages 3 and up: $10 per child (one adult can bring siblings); includes all materials.
This is an open studio for any skill level. Get help with projects, bring mending, learn to read patterns, exchange ideas, and share knowledge with other sewists. Experienced teachers are always on hand to help.
If you have your own sewing machine it's best to bring it, or we have a few for new learners to use. Also, learn how to maintain a machine and troubleshoot problems.
Drop ins welcome: $10
