Introductory Classes

We understand that if you've never done a craft or skill before, you may not want to invest a huge amount of money (or time!) into trying it out. We agree... so we have developed some short introductory courses designed to give our customers a chance to try your hand at something new at a reasonable price.

Most of these classes are available as Class on Demand, so be sure to call or email if you are interested in taking one of these classes.

This class is intended for people who haven't sewn before and would like to try it before committing to a comprehensive class. Students receive instruction during three classes as well as one Drop-In Day which they may use as they wish. Together we will cover the basic skills required in order to begin sewing garments and other projects using a sewing machine and some basic hand sewing techniques. By the end of this course level, you should be able use a sewing machine to sew simple items with a pattern or instructions and choose fabrics and tools appropriate for a project.

If you don't yet have a sewing machine, please let us know when you register so that you can use one of ours. If you have a portable machine, please bring it to class, including your manual and any accessories (it's best to learn on the machine you'll be using at home.)
