This series is so much fun. We are using Shae Henderson’s textbook, School of Sewing, as our inspiration to work through a series of projects that introduce and build on your body of sewing knowledge – and you’ll have great small projects to take home! In the sessions, we cover information such as a review on basic use of your sewing machines, standard sewing tools, and sewing fundamentals, which are reinforced with each class.
We use a portfolio of small projects that introduce sewing techniques and build on sewing skills as we
progress through them so over time beginners can sew independently. Those of you who have sewing experience will enjoy the projects and reinforce your skill sets as well. While it is recommended beginners follow the series order to build sewing knowledge, experienced sewists may prefer to select their sessions by project.
Each session concentrates on completing a non-garment sewing project and includes a kit. (Watch for our
garmentfocused series as well.) When a multi-session package is purchased, the book, School of Sewing by Shae Henderson, is included. All classes include a kit for your projects. Please bring along your sewing machine and a basic sewing kit*. We’ll have extra items you may need on our Table Top Store in case you find you’re missing something along the way.
We have tables for sewing, cutting, constructing, and collaborating, along with ironing stations, our notions store, library, coffee/tea/hot chocolate and select treats!
Classes are 3 hours each followed by Open Sewing periods ranging from 3 – 5 hours with an instructor(s) and peers available for guidance. We currently have sessions scheduled about every six weeks on Sunday afternoons. These are subject to change as we learn what suits all of us best.
When you purchase a multi-session package, you have the option to select any of the sessions, but once registered for a specific session, you must follow the cancellation policy. If you’d like to make payments for a package, please contact me.
*Basic Sewing Kit typically includes shears, snips, pins, pin cushion, seam ripper, gauge or small ruler. Good add-ons are threads, machine and hand sewing needles.
Our School of Sewing dates for 2018 are coming soon. Sign up for our newsletter and be the first to know.
Our Open Sewing times are also open to your friends who may want to sit and sew along with us. It’s an ideal time to show off your work, and finish any UFOs (UnFinished Objects) you or they may have!
