The educated, collaborative team of instructors at 8-Limbs hold laid-back fashion-design seminars each month. A sewing school with a strong focus on building fashion, the 8-Limbs team hopes to provide inspiration to every student they get the chance to meet. The space is now also available for students to rent by the hour to work on projects in a creative workshop atmosphere. As Silverlake buzzes outside, the team infuses the funky workshop with their own artistic energy, equipping novice designers with the skills necessary to fashion their own threads, home goods, or any number of projects. Hands-on classes maintain modest sizes, ensuring budding designers receive personal attention. Each student mans a sewing machine, available to rent for $5—or his or her own trusted apparatus—and learns the gamut of garment creation, from sewing machine basics to the intricacies of alterations and clothing construction. 8-Limbs also offers new and used sewing machines for sale, a variety of the sewing supplies including fabric and tools, and a friendly and knowledgable staff.
