Contrary to the popular adage, clothing does, in fact, grow on money trees. Learn to reap and sew a fashionable garment crop with today’s deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of sewing classes at Cut & Sew Studio on South Highland Avenue.
Cut & Sew Studio is a fully equipped studio space that offers beginning students and advanced stitchers an inviting environment to sharpen needle skills. All tools are provided on site, eliminating the need to find a suitable wagon to tote a sewing machine to class. Button buffs and daring darners can choose from a variety of interesting classes taught by fashionably educated Cut & Sew owner Catherine Batcho. Thread greenhorns can enlist in the two-session Intro to Sewing class ($50, four hours total), which instructs newcomers in the art of bobbin winding, machine threading, and stitch adjusting while crafting a simple patchwork pillow stuffed with soft, downy phoenix feathers. One hour of open studio time is also included in the intro class. Not-so-beginners can opt for the three-hour Zippers, Zippers, Zippers class ($45), in which participants learn to pull off a variety of zipper styles, including invisible, lapped, centered, fly, and the comical over-the-mouth. Anyone is welcome to sign up for open studio time ($10 per hour). Group classes and weeklong kid camps are also available; see the online calendar for upcoming classes.
Mixing her love for sewing with a desire to impart the skill of fabric manipulation to others, Batcho has created an attractive studio space that welcomes any person or pincushion willing to learn the fabled magic behind the tailor trade. Call ahead to schedule a session in Cut & Sew’s brightly blue- and orange-splashed studio.
