Let us teach you the basics of sewing in 6 (super fun) weeks!
When you're enrolled in either of our Beginner Sewing Boot Camps, you will learn basic sewing skills & basic design techniques used in creating unique, custom made accessories, home decor & even clothing.
We offer two six-week beginner sewing courses that are designed for the beginning stitcher.
- Beginner Sewing Boot Camp Wearables
- Beginner Sewing Boot Camp Home Decor
Each of these separate courses are 15 hours in total divided up between 6 weekly classes.
As a student, you will likely take home 4-6 completed sewing projects in either of the 6 week boot camp classes.

If you miss a class or classes, you probably will not finish all your projects.
2.) How much work you do at Sew Club and at home in between classes (if you miss class).
3. ) Your experience coming into the class & the pace that you work.

However - when you enroll in this boot camp class you get free Sew Club classes (normally $20/class) during AND one month past the end of your session. Sew Club is a great opportunity to "makeup" anything you might have missed in a class, catch up on anything you fall behind on, or just sew whatever you'd like. Again - there are no makeup classes if you miss a session.
There is also the option of taking a private lessons to make up a missed class. The rate for a private lesson while you are enrolled in a 6-week class is $40/hour (normally $65/hour). Buy Now | Send email to schedule

"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!!" -Thanee
"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!" -Eileen
