Though later appropriated by craftspeople and tailors, sewing was invented by medieval surgeons as a way to keep humours from escaping the body and infecting inanimate objects. Enroll in medieval med school with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a three-hour Learn to Sew – Zip It! class at Cozy Quilt Shop in El Cajon (a $50 value).

Cozy Quilt Shop binds together knowledge of sewing and quilting with ample supplies to create custom textile arts. Inductees spin out a home-sewn 9½”x6”x3” tote, complete with zipper, during the Learn to Sew – Zip It! class. After selecting a swath of fabric from the shop's resplendent sheaths, tailors-in-training learn to wind bobbins and thread the store-provided machines. Instructors embed skills, such as changing needles and working with different stitches, into the filing cabinets of student brains, replacing outdated information about formulating a subjunctive clause in Spanish. When class ends, customers wake from a dream world of somnambulist accessory assemblage to find themselves in possession of a new, zippered, flat-bottomed pouch, perfectly sized to hold cosmetics or frozen hotdogs. Prospective students should call to reserve a spot in an upcoming class.

Cozy Quilt Shop

For a long time, owning a quilt shop was a dream deferred for Daniela Stout. In fact, the way she describes it, it was basically a fantasy, albeit one with not enough dragons. But she was determined to make it happen, and when it did, she was almost surprised when her Cozy Quilt Shop developed a loyal following of customers who loved quilting and everything about it.

Today the shop, which boasts more than 4,500 square feet home to more than 3,000 bolts of colorful, high-quality fabric, contains all the tools, accessories, and inspiration quilters want and need. A monthly quilting club, cheekily named the Strip Club, gives crafters a chance to get together, sew, and share ideas. For those who need a little more instruction, Cozy Quilt Shop teaches patrons the basics of sewing in a variety of classes.

Be ready to be patient if u really haven't done much sewing. There aren't as many instructors as there are people in the class- bit it was still an amazing experience.
