Sewing circles were once a popular place to exchange rumors about the area's handsomest fireman, which of the neighboring towns' mayors were secretly left-handed, and the fate of the Crumb brothers. Get your finger on the pulse and some thread with today's Groupon: for $50, you get enrollment in Sewtology 101, an introductory sewing class at Quiltology Design Studio in Lakeview (a $100 value).

Keeping curious quilters and savvy stitchers well stocked in fabrics, patterns, and other fashionable, fasten-able accouterments, Quiltology Design Studio transforms needle novices into capable crafters with its introductory sewing sessions. During the two-hour Sewtology 101 class, Quiltology's thread tutors lead rudimentary seamsmiths through the sewing basics, covering everything from fabric selection and thread and bobbin usage to machine function and the proper way to thwart Rumpelstiltskin. Class sizes are kept small to allow each aspiring home-ec-er to get quality hands-on time with one of the studio's sewing machines, learning the process by studying constituent system parts and taking spools for a test spin using practice scraps from Quiltology's fiber-rich stash.

Sewing newbies get the jump on jaunty thread twisting with Sewtology 101's sewing project. Students leave the crafty confines of Quiltology's Lakeview studio with their handmade pin cushion, calibrated to store tailoring tools and boyfriends turned into toothpicks during spellcasting accidents.

  • I couldn't have asked for a better experience in regards to this class. Though I sewed in high school, it's been a long time and I needed to brush up on the basics without being treated like a baby. – Anna H., Yelp, 5/4/10
  • a fabulous shop – Amanda C., Yelp, 8/7/09
