Aristotle was the first to write that what separates man from beast is not our ability to reason, but rather our ability to use yarn and needles to knit our own books. Craft your own copy of Poetics with today's Groupon to The Sewing Parlour. Choose from the following options:

The Sewing Parlour is one of Salt Lake City's first sewing lounges, offering classes in a comfortable and friendly environment for thread-bearers of all cuts. Both the sewing class and the sewing series instruct novices in machine- and hand-sewing techniques. Topics taught in the sewing class include getting to know your machine, sewing seams and curves, closing a patient after minor surgery, and making your first project. Those who elect the five-class series will learn more extensively about commercial patterns, cutting, methods of construction, pressing, and use of tools and notions (accessories). The class builds toward the construction of a final project, a kimono-style robe or top using a commercial pattern. The cost of the pattern is included in the course fee, but students will need to provide the materials, including about 4 yards of fabric (usually around $1–$8 per yard). Classes and workshops are limited to five participants to ensure everyone receives ample attention and can go out after class to play pickup basketball. Use The Sewing Parlour's machines or bring your own.
