Knowing how to sew can come in handy in numerous scenarios, such as patching up a favorite pair of jeans or concealing a flask inside a teddy bear. Nurture your sutures with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $15 for one quilting or sewing class (up to a $35 value)
- $25 for two quilting or sewing classes of up to a $35 value each (up to a $70 total value)
- $32 for three quilting or sewing classes of up to a $35 value each (up to a $105 total value)<p>
Classes for $35 and less include both basic training such as Start Sewing I and II, and fun, practical projects such as a colorful sundress for a little girl, an all-occasion adult’s tunic, or a multipurpose field tote. Classes generally take the format of a single three-hour workshop or several two-hour sessions spread over two or three days. Level-one classes cover the simplest foundations, level-two classes are open to anyone with a basic understanding of the craft, and level-three classes require more experience in sewing and quilting.<p>
Alternatively, Groupon customers can apply the total value of the option they select to any configuration of classes, opening up possibilities such as the eight-week Beginner Quilting course ($99) or the two-day Beginner Appliqué class ($45), where they learn to apply flowers to quilting squares by hand. The T-Shirt Quilt project ($65) repurposes worn-out closet contents into one-of-a-kind bed warmers that act as an even more convincing testimony to the crafter’s individuality than having a thumbprint shaped like Ayn Rand.
The Quilted Nest
Inspired fabric artists find everything they need at The Quilted Nest, and those seeking inspiration can find it in fun patterns and books nestled amid neatly stacked bolts of quilt-shop-quality cotton. Creative ideas also abound in the shop's regularly scheduled classes, putting an end to quilters' days of patterning squares after boring stock-market charts. Customers are encouraged to bring their own sewing machines, but public machines are available for rent during classes. In addition to workshops and classes, the shop also hosts events such as weekly Manic Mondays, where anyone can needle away with no studio or machine-rental fee as long as they are working on a project for a charity.
