100% Thumbs Up on Sewing Workshops

Thank you to all of our LivingSocial participants! We have enjoyed meeting you and can’t wait to see you again. Read a sample of the wonderful LivingSocial reviews we received here on our adult sewing workshops.

June Adult Sewing Workshops

It’s sun-dress season, and we know you’re burning to learn how to make your own creations. That’s why we’ve added the new Sip ‘n Sew Series, in which we will teach specific garment construction techniques (zippers, darts, collars, etc.) and provide guidance for any sewing project of your choice, along with some tasty adult beverages. It’s not called Sip ‘n Sew for nothing! Perfect timing to have a new dress ready for a Fourth of July party. Sign up now and bring your favorite dress pattern and fabric. See June calendar for all upcoming Adult Sewing Workshops.

Durham Art Walk

What’s the best part about Spring? All of the colorful fabrics! Our shelves are fully stocked with cheery choices for the students in our Adult Sewing Workshops and Girls Programs. The warm weather has inspired all of us to sew new skirts, dresses, and tote bags. Visit us during the Durham Art Walk Spring Market (April 28 & 29) when we’ll have tote bags available for purchase!

Registration is still open for the After School Program, which runs from the week of April 17 thru the week of May 22. It is the final session before our Crafty Summer Day Camp. Email Jenn to sign up now!

Introducing: Woven Pillows

By popular demand, we have added a new Sewing Workshop: Woven Pillows. You’ll learn how to weave on a simple loom, prepare the woven design for transfer, and sew it into new pillow. The possibilities are endless in selecting from our collection of yarns, specialty ribbons, and textured threads. We will guide you on choosing complimentary colors and textures, and you will leave with a one-of-a-kind project. Sign up for March dates by emailing Jenn.

Sewing Workshops, Kids Day Off

Ever since our LivingSocial deal sold out, the studio has been buzzing practically every day and night with the whir of sewing machines. We have had a blast meeting all of the fabulous women at our studio. Check out these lovely ladies modeling their new tote bags, proudly sewn at our workshop.

Today we hosted another Kids Day Off workshop. The girls designed striped pillows and ugly doll-inspired creatures. I love how different they all came out. Sew creative!
