The Hipstitch Outpost is our sewing studio away from home.

We're SEW excited to announce our second sewing studio location in the Catskills. Now you can find us part of the time in Harpersfield NY.  It's where we've started hosting our  Sewing Retreats.

In addition to holding sewing classes in this new Catskills sewing studio in Harpersfield, we'll be teaching sewing in and around the area of the Western Catskills. Check schedule below:



If you own your own sewing machine and want to bring it to class, it must meet the following conditions:

  • Must be a modern sewing machine that was manufactured with the last 10 years.
  • Must be in working order.

Please make a note of the cancelation policy. Due to the nature of this hands-on workshop, there is very limited space in this class!  No shows and last minute cancellations (within 48 hour of the class) cannot reschedule.

I would highly recommend taking classes at M Avery Design. Megan is a wonderful instructor, clear, fun and patient. The boot-camp class teaches you the skills which will allow you to begin sewing at home. Megan combines instruction with also empowering you, as the student, to figure things out independently. Aside from the class, the studio is super clean and is located in a great neighborhood. There are so many other classes happening simultaneously in the building.

"I'm so glad I signed up for Beginner Sewing Boot Camp! I sort of taught myself as a youngster, w/grandma to help, but didn't sew for years. Happy to be diving in and finally doing it again. We made so many useful items in the Beginner Sewing Boot Camp and I'm looking forward to more classes this summer! And there's a parking lot! In Hoboken!"

"I wanted a creative outlet and I'm so glad my friend told me about this place! I signed up for the beginners boot camp and I can't wait till next week to learn more! Our teacher is great, explains everything step by step and takes her time to help you individually if you need it! 5 stars!!"
