Sewing Tutorials and Patterns from our Classes & Workshops

We’re finally selling & giving away our sewing patterns and tutorials from our most popular adult sewing classes right here on our website!

Some of the tutorials/patterns are free and all of them are very affordable at $6 and under!

The thing that makes these patterns great is all the testing they’ve been through!

We’ve been using these patterns for our Beginner Sewing Boot Camp for, at least, the last 10 years (no exaggeration) because they’re projects that people LOVE and that work really well on most body types! Through years we’ve improved the patterns an tutorials based on the feedback our students have given us to make them better!

Taking one of our sewing classes is STILL, by far, the best way to learn how to sew, we realize this is not possible for all people. Now you can try out our sewing projects at home.

How about this: mittens, infinity scarf, fingerless gloves, bag, ear warmers… and the list goes on and on. For even more ideas, check out our “Old Sweater” Board on Pinterest.

Please sign up online or call 201.876.1198

Supplies needed:
-One Old Sweater

If the sweater is at least 50% wool, you can wash it with soap in hot water and then even throw it in the dryer before the class. This will obviously make it shrink and you’ll have less sweater to work with, but it will “felt” the fibers together making the wool more like actual felt, which can be pretty cool. But this is not a requirement.
