Open Sew

vintage_machine_name

Come learn to sew in our relaxed environment, with instructors here to help you with your latest sewing project. This class is for beginners who would like to learn the basics OR stitchers with some experience  who would like to improve their skills and meet other people with similar interests.

We’ll focus on learning how to make the items you would like to make. We can help suggest appropriate projects for your skill level. This can include accessories, quilts, simple clothing, baby items, kids clothing and much, much, more. Kind of like a private lesson, but in a group setting. No more than 5 students per session. All levels of sewing are welcome.
$25 Per Class
