Classes at Sew Creative are housed in a cozy cottage-like setting that inspires beginners’ homemade craftsmanship as they learn the basics of sewing, fashion projects, and creative quilting techniques. In the two-session Learn to Sew and Love It! class, students discover how to thread and operate an automatic or stick-shift sewing machine. Tips on pattern interpretation and fabric selection arm neophytes with the knowledge to sew apparel and décor pieces. The two-part Better than Vera Bag class yields a shoulder bag with a strikingly designer-like look, ideal for impressing friends or inspiring department-store bags to ogle with open-zippered jealousy.
Alternatively, Sew Creative’s knowledgeable staff introduces students to quilting in the three-session Learn to Quilt and Love It! class. Learn rotary and strip cutting, block piercing, and the art of binding the quilt, all while using an Irish chain pattern based on James Joyce’s stream-of-consciousness style.
