What You'll Get

A patchwork blanket, like a person after their 21st birthday party, is a collection of sewn-together memories spread across a bed. Learn to put the pieces together with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $29 for a two-hour beginner sewing-machine operation class (a $60 value)
  • $89 for a four-hour intermediate intro to clothing construction class (a $180 value)
  • $89 for a four-hour advanced Building Reversible clothing construction workshop (a $180 value). All students must bring two cut-out basic T-shirts.<p>

During the beginner-level class, students learn to navigate a sewing machine’s sea of bobbins to create seams, change the needle, and adjust controls, culminating in the creation of a tote bag. The intro to clothing construction class applies pupils’ existent skills to designing and developing a T-shirt from conception to completion. Challenging every advanced sewing skill, from installing a sleeve to tapping Morse code on the pedal, the Building Reversible workshop imparts more subtle techniques for engineering clothing as students gain the ability to design a T-shirt that can be worn inside-out.<p>

About 8-Limbs

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.
