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.
Learn to Sew - Introductory Class
Available anytime as a Class on Demand
Price includes all supplies and (if needed) machine use
Minimum class size: 1 Maximum class size: 4
3 class sessions (7.5 hours) + 1 Drop-In Day
or if you want help with a certain skill or project,
consider Drop-In Sewing
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.)
Crochet Crash Course

one crochet hook, &
cotton yarn for one of the pictured projects
Minimum class size: 1 Maximum class size: 3

Crochet is definitely back in style!
Whether you want to learn enough to be able to whip up a quick hat or scarf, or if you want to make one of those retro granny square afghans, you can get a solid start in this short introductory course. You'll learn how to start, basic stitches, and how to read a written or graphic crochet pattern. Projects you can choose to complete in this class include makeup remover pads, dishcloths, and washcloths. Because this class is short, you may need to complete your project after class. You'll also receive one Drop-In Day (up to 3 hours of studio use and help).
*May require up to 7 days notice
