Learn to Sew

This is our absolute beginner’s class. Have a machine but don't know how to use it? Always wanted to sew or quilt but don't know how? Bring a machine if you have one and learn to use it.  You will learn the basic operation of the machine and create a simple project.  All materials are provided for the project. Includes class kit. Bring your own machine or rent one from us for the class.

Not sure if the machine you have works? Bring it into the shop for us to give it an evaluation at least a week before class.

Don't have a machine yet? Take the class with one of ours so you can be make an informed choice when it comes time to buy a machine.
