Learn more advanced sewing skills to make clothing in just a few (super fun) weeks!

Students will focus on learning basic sewing skills to construct 2-3 articles of clothing that actually actually fit your body. We’ve designed a 15 hour sewing class that will take your skills to the next level.
This is a sewing course is designed for the sewing student who’s had some basic experience. The course is 15 hours in total divided up between 6 weekly (2 1/2 Hour) classes.

As with all our sewing classes, all students work at their own pace and focus on learning new skills based on the skills they come to class with.
