$79 for Four-Week Sewing Fundamentals Class ($160 Value)

For four consecutive weeks, two-hour classes acquaint up to six students with Janome 625E sewing machines and basic techniques, which they'll use to craft three projects: pillowcases, headbands, and petite, zippered sugar-loaf makeup pouches. Outside of class, students can also drop in to open-studio evenings each Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. so that their assigned machine doesn't imprint on someone else, and consult an included Sewing Handbook PDF for further tips. Make-up sessions are held Tuesdays at 7 p.m. for those who must miss a regularly scheduled session.

The Make Den

Alison Broverman of the National Post reported that "sewing machine phobia melts away" in The Make Den's studio. There, in a space resembling a 1950s kitchen, founder and Ryerson University grad Irene Stickney interweaves sound sewing principles and time-saving tricks into her workshops. Subjects range from an initial, embroidered letter of introduction to sewing techniques to crocheted cupcakes and the otherworldly style of Lady Gaga. Several of the Den's instructors can also be seen gliding through the streets of the city in their own outrageous, hand-sewn matching creations as members of the Deadly Nightshades fashion-and-cycling posse.
