Hart’s Fabric, an independent fabric retailer that’s been in business for more than 40 years, hosts weekly classes designed to help aspiring sewers, knitters, and quilters hone their stitch-making skills. Lessons cover the creation of a specific item, such as a pillowcase, skirt, or quilt sewn from Mugsy Bogues postage stamps. Other seminars take a broader approach: Intro to Silks ($25), for example, helps pupils improve their handling of slippery materials, and their pajama party class ($30), helps begininning students learn the basics of sewing and how to properly wear a nightcap. Each month’s calendar of events lists the weekly class schedules. Although not covered by this Groupon, the retail store also sells sewing supplies, quilting cottons, and an extensive variety of fabrics, including knit, lace, linen, wool, and satin.
