Classes are a great way to learn how to sew. Many people who are attracted to sewing are visual learners, which means they learn better by watching someone else than by reading a list of instructions. Of course, we welcome all kinds of learners – if you learn by reading perhaps you could come on by and help me with these pattern instructions...
Speaking of patterns, pattern companies generally assume that you know a lot about sewing already, so the instructions included sometimes are not as illuminating as they could be. Taking a few beginning lessons will save you big on time, energy and messed-up fabric!
Our classes are quite small, with the maximum amount of students being six. So you are sure to get a lot of individual attention!
