Sewing School!

I've finally got my act together, peeps.
I'm posting my information about fall sewing classes under the "Sewing School" tab of my homepage and just because it's new I thought I'd post it here too so you can check it out.
Fall classes can begin at your convenience; Just send me an email or give me a call.
Classes are typically 2-3 people for a weekly class and up to 5 people for a weekend class. Sewing classes are a really fun thing to do with friends, so get a group together!
Anyway...here's the info and I can't wait to get fall classes started!
Beginners Sewing 101- Calling all want-to-be seamstresses! Whether you’ve dabbled in sewing here and there or if you’ve never touched a machine, this is the class for you. In Sewing 101 you’ll learn the mechanics of your sewing machine and what all those sewing tools are for. We’ll talk about selecting fabrics, proper cutting and pinning, and using a pattern. This class is the most comprehensive of all of the Sewing School classes. You’ll make 6 super cute projects while learning all of the basics of sewing.
Classes are an hour and a half long, once a week, for 8 weeks. The cost for entire course is $200.
Fall openings: Monday,Thursday, or Friday 10:00 am to 12:00 pm,  Monday or Tuesday 6:30-8:30 pm
Beginners Workshop- No time for class every week? This is a one day comprehensive sewing workshop for beginners. We’ll cover the basics and give you an introduction into the world of sewing while making several sweet projects…all in one day! A homemade lunch and snacks are provided during the 6 hour course. If you have friends that would like to all take a beginners workshop together, I can schedule an event especially for you!

This is a one day class that meets from 10 am to 4 pm. We'll be having our first Beginners Workshop on Saturday, November 5th. The cost is $85, including lunch and snacks. The class limit is 5 people.


Other Sewing School offers include...
Studio Time: Studio Time is for anyone with sewing experience (or who has taken a beginners class) who has a specific project in mind that they need a little extra help with. Come in and I’ll get you started or let me help you finally complete a project that you’ve had on your to do list for a long time! Contact me for prices and more information.
Custom Sewing: I love a good project and I’m happy to take on yours! Whether it’s curtains for your living room or a whole nursery, I can help you pick out fabrics and then stitch them up with precision and care! You’ll have something unique, original, and handmade to treasure.
Specialty Classes: Look for classes coming up in the near future that focus on specific projects such as: baby gifts, throw pillows, curtains, Christmas décor, a simple a line skirt, and more! These classes will be for students who have completed a beginners class or have a sewing background.
