Choose Between Two Options
- $59 for a three-hour, one-time basic sewing class (a $129 value)
- $150 for a five-week introductory sewing program (a $300 value)<p>
During the one-time class, participants learn to read patterns, finish seams, and work the basic functions of a sewing machine as they create a colorful tote bag to take home. The five-week program continues with more advanced skills such as sewing darts, installing zippers, and adjusting garment size. During one three-hour session each week, participants make new items such as yoga bags, aprons, pajamas, or skirts. The three-hour class includes all necessary materials and both classes afford participants the use of a Singer or Brother sewing machine. Those enrolled in the five-week program receive a 20% in-store discount for supplies. View the fall schedule.
