Private & Duet Sewing Lessons for Kids & Adults

M Avery Designs offers private & duet sewing lessons for adults, teens and kids at our comfortable & inspiring studio in Hoboken NJ.

Choose your projects and one of our skilled instructors will guide you through it step by step, one-on-one. Or come with a friend or family member and it becomes a duet lesson. You don’t have to work on the same project or be at the same skill level to have a duet lesson with someone else.

Private and duet lessons are “tailored” to meet your sewing needs. If you are a complete beginner, we’ll start with the basics and go from there. If you have sewn before but want to learn something specific, we’ll work on that during your sewing lesson or class.

Cancellation Policy: When you sign up for a private or duet lesson, you agree to the cancellation policy here.

Our Registration & Cancelation Policies

  • You must sign up for a class either online, in person, or by telephone BEFORE a class to be guaranteed a spot. It’s best to sign up at least a few days before the class to ensure your spot, as well as to help us properly plan for the class. Classes fill up frequently. You can always try dropping in on a class, but there may not be room for you in a class and in this case you will be turned away.

  • M Avery Designs reserves the right to cancel a class that does not have sufficient enrollment. If this happens to a class you are signed up for, you will be notified at least 3 days before the class starts. You can choose to have the cost of the class refunded or to apply the balance of the class to your account to be used for a future class.

  • There are no monetary refunds for canceling any adult or children’s class or private lesson.

  • Please let us know as soon as you can if for some reason you have to cancel or reschedule a private sewing lesson or group class. Group classes can be rescheduled only if there is a future occurrence of the class.

  • Due to the hands-on nature and small size of  all our classes & workshop, there is very limited space in all our classes!  No shows and last minute cancelations (within 48 hour of the class) cannot reschedule.

  • If you cancel or reschedule within 48 hours of your scheduled private/duet lesson, the lesson will be deducted from your package. 

  • There are no refunds or reschedules for any of the summer camp classes offered.

  • We cannot pro-rate any weeklong classes for non-attendance one day.

  • When you book your private party, the M Avery Designs representative will charge your organizer a deposit of $50. This means you are committing to the date and time you requested. Date and Time changes can be made up to 1 week of your private event date. Cancellations within 1 month of the reservation date will lose the $50 deposit. Cancellations made within 1 week of your reservation date will be charged an additional $100 for loss of business.
