Beginner’s Sewing #1

$35 — 2  hrs

You will learn the basic functionality of a sewing machine and how to maintain a straight seam line. This class is perfect for people who have never used a sewing machine and those who have had a little bit of experience a long time ago and need a refresher course! The project you will make is the Beginner’s Pillow as pictured.

Beginner’s Sewing #2

$35 — 2  hrs

A great 2nd class to take after the Beginner’s #1-Pillow class. Choose from our selection of colorful pre-cut fabrics. Beginners Sewing #1 is a pre-requisite UNLESS you already have basic sewing skills. In this class you’ll learn how to “top stitch”, how to make handle straps, a patch pocket, a lining and a box corner.

Zippered Pouch

$35 — 2  hrs

This practical little zippered pouch can be used for make-up or jewelry when you travel or any number of things.  It makes a great gift that you can use to hold OTHER small gifts! It’s MUCH easier to make than you might think!  If you can sew in a straight line, you can make this pouch.

Scalloped Apron

$45 — 3  hrs

Have fun making this adorable REVERSIBLE scalloped edge half apron.  YES, it’s reversible, so essentially 2 aprons in one!  Basic sewing skills required to complete this project, especially being able to sew around curves.  An easy project, though,as long as you can sew around curves.  Precut options will be available so you can get started sewing as soon as you arrive.

Abstract Placemat

$50 — 3.5  hrs

Super easy “Quilt-as-you-go” placemat looks great and is really fun to make. This workshop is offered in 2 parts. During Part 1 you will piece all the strips  and start to quilt them to the batting and backing.  This is a VERY easy project – perfect for a Beginner! IF you are an experienced sewist who knows how to bind the edges of a quilt you could skip Part 2 as binding the edges is primarily what will be accomplished during part 2..

Clutch Purse

$35 — 2  hrs

Cute little clutch purse, sort of like a decorative wallet.  It has a 2  compartments inside, one with a zipper, and a little pocket with a velcroed flap for your change.  Perfect for keys, money, cell phone & lipstick – all you need when you go out in the evening. Make one to go with your favorite outfit. As is the case with most of our projects – it’s easier to make than you might think!

$30 — 1.5 hrs

Tired of burning your fingers when you reach into the microwave to get that bowl of soup that you just heated up?
