Classes at Sew Simple of Lynchburg

We've resumed some of our classes at Sew Simple. We continue to have a "Learn to Use a Sewing Machine" class almost every month due to popular demand. The Janome Embroidery Club will resume in 2024. We are also introducing a new sewing social time for wool applique, hand embroidery and other hand work.

See our calendar below for our current offerings. 

Below the calendar are 4 other ways you can learn online from Amy, sometimes with a cameo appearance from Eric, our machine tech.


Learn to Use a Sewing Machine

An absolute beginner's sewing class, teaching the basic operation of your machine. You will learn how to wind a bobbin, thread and adjust your machine and make a simple project. We can provide a rental machine if you don't have one.

Janome Embroidery Club

Have a Janome 500e, 550e, 9850, S9, 12000, 14000, or 15000? Come learn more about getting the most out of your machine with its embroidery features. An ongoing embroidery club.

Amy's Free Quilt-Alongs

You'll find Amy quilting on live video Fridays at 5:30 on the Amy Quilts - Sew Simple Facebook page. These videos are often in the form of ongoing quilt-alongs in which you can purchase the kit and follow along to learn new designs and improve your skills. It's a fun, laid back learning environment.

Amy on YouTube

Need to get right to the learning with faster paced videos? The AmyQuilts YouTube channel is just the ticket! With video topics from free motion quilting, quilting with rulers, and machine specific tips, it's a great resource.
