Do you need a reason to sew??

  1. It counts as school but feels like a hobby, how cool is that! (This class will count as a middle or high school elective (art or home economics))

  2. It’s fun!!!

  3. It’s a great life skill (ever lost a button or ripped some Jeans??

  4. It’s creative (who wouldn’t have unique accessories or even clothes??)

Come and explore how a modern sewing machine works and put it to work right away and create fun and useful items, that are easy and fashionable.

From a pillowcase with pocket, cord keepers hair scrunchies, pencil/ make-up pouch with zipper to a messenger bag with matching wallet that holds your phone as well and more will get your creative juices flowing...

This class does not require any sewing skills, but if you already know a bit is not a problem either.


Necessary to bring to class for each student:

-Working and portable sewing machine WITH printed handbook (important!!!)

(Feel free to contact me for advice if you plan on buying one, you can find nice and quite inexpensive ones at amazon,Walmart,sometimes even at Tuesday Morning, look for “brother” or “singer” brand)

-Carrying bag or hard case for sewing machine

--> before class starts I'll send out a detailed list with needed items like scissors, etc and also fabric requirements for special projects

( the supply fee will cover handouts as well as fabric and materials needed for small projects )


Minimum class size: 5 students

Tuition: $105 per month ( or $125 if less than 5 students) for 9 months

Supply Fee: $50 per semester due in September and January ( see above, additional fabric will be needed )

Please contact me with questions, I'll be happy to help you!
