About The Space


Sewing Classes

Beginner to Advanced skill levels

Do you want to learn to sew, or build your skills? Our studio space has everything you need to get started! Our classes range from complete beginner to advanced skills while offering you a bright creative space to work in with all of the tools you need!  and our classes are small so that you get the individual attention that you need.

While we do not sell fabric and notions on site, we provide full supply lists at the time of registration and can recommend quality local supply stores. 

The sewing studio is outfitted with Janome 2030QDC machines; if you prefer to sew on your own machine you can bring it to class. It must be in good working order and you must know how to use it; our instructors will not be able to help with sewing machine problems other than the in-class machines. 

Prices of classes vary. See class listings

Machine Rentals

Our 6 Janome sewing machines and all of the studio supplies are available for rental by the hour so you can work on your own projects at your own pace. Come by yourself or with friends and find your inspiration in our big, bright workshop while you make use of our large cutting table, irons and ironing boards.

You should have some experience using a sewing machine to sew by the hour. We love to to offer advice, but if you need coaching or a lesson, please check our class schedule!

We supply white and black thread. but if you need other colors you should bring your own. We also have all of the other notions you will need including scissors, rotary cutters, rulers, cutting mats and pins to help your work.
