ADULT CLASSES Call to sign up
8 week sessions begin Tuesday or Thursdays,
6:00pm - 8:00pm, $160.00 per 8 week session
This class is for the beginner or those with more experience. For the beginner, if you have your own sewing machine you are encouraged to bring it so you can learn on the machine you’ll be using at home. New students will be making a fitted skirt with zipper, lining and kick pleat so you'll be learning many techniques.
For the more advanced student we can discuss a project you want to tackle. I strongly encourage students to challenge themselves.
How about a winter coat or suit?
YOUTH CLASSES Call to sign up
8 week After School sessions begin Wednesday or Friday.
3:30pm - 5:30pm, $160.00 per 8 week session
Young students ages 8 and up will learn the beginnings of sewing with hands-on work. Safety is first with using the machines on the first day! In eight 2 hour sessions students will also learn pinning a pattern onto fabric, cutting fabric and sewing it together. We will be making a drawstring tote bag then a skirt or pants. Sewing skills learned are; reading and cutting a commercial pattern, decorative stitching, and casings with drawstring, lining and turning.
These classes are continuous as you’ll see from the session dates. Students that choose to continue to the second session will work on more challenging projects and keep building on their knowledge.
