The Education person is very excited to have us and is working hard to make our classes fit into theirs. For a bit it may be confusing who you pay and register with but we’ll try to make it clear.

Fashion Sewing Club is a monthly meeting featuring garments, pattern modification and review, and the latest news in the sewing world. You will be provided with tips, techniques and new ideas that are sure to inspire you. Current fashion, chic wear, proper fit, and children’s wear are some of the topics we will explore. Whether you are an experienced sewist (and you’ve been quilting while waiting for something like this:) or just beginning – this club is for you! Bring Show and Tell for a chance to win a door prize.

Please email ([email protected]) or call (952-201-3863) with questions.

Sew Social –bring your sewing project and work on it in the company of other sewists. We will help you with pattern and fabric choice, fit issues and construction techniques. This class is meant to add a social component to a solitary endeavor and is priced accordingly. This is also a great place for you to take what you learned in Beginning Serger and apply it as you complete a garment (when to use the serger and when to use your sewing machine). If you feel your skill level needs more time and attention, please sign up for Beginning Sewing or Serger or a private lesson.

Cost: $15 per class or $40 if you pay for 3

  1. Hello Ladies

    I am very interested in learning to sew. I am kind of a clumsy when it comes to sewing. I have tried in the past. Can you please tell me what class I should start off with, can you also suggest a sewing machine to buy. Thank you

  2. Hi, Gretchen,
    Sorry I didn’t catch this earlier! You are probably making your own clothes by now 🙂
    Anyway, we have some beginner sewing classes underway and you could jump in if you want on Wednesday evenings. They’ll continue in July. AS for buying a machine we advise buying from a dealer as they will stand behind the machines, give you instruction in basic operation and most will allow trade ups if you decide you love sewing and want more of a machine than you initially purchase.
    Hope that helps.
