Beginner Sewing Lessons at the beginner level. Each class is project-oriented and designed to reinforce lessons while providing a sense of accomplishment. Many students have never touched a sewing machine before and we start at the very beginning. We work with commercial patterns to start and you will build your sewing skills as your progress. Each project introduces new techniques and reinforces the ones you have already learned. Class sizes are limited so there is a lot of individualized attention and you can learn in a very non intimidating and fun environment.
I am flexible and the class schedule can change depending on enrollment. If you would like a class on a different day or night please email me.

Make Up Classes
I will try to accommodate make ups - but as the schedule fills - this will become difficult. No refunds or discounts will be given for missed classes, but you will be offered up to three make-ups per year. Missed classes will be made up by appointment only. Twenty-four hour notice is appreciated if you are going to miss your scheduled class. Please make every effort to attend your scheduled class.
