All Classes at Joann Fabrics Yorktown/Edina

We are happy to be teaching at Joann Fabrics in Edina. The store is located across the street from Target at the intersection of York and Hazelton streets. 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 no longer meeting at Joann. We’ve added a Tuesday evening meeting at Treadle Yard Goods-please see the class listing for dates.

NEW CLASS!
Sew 4 Kids
Got kids? Grandkids? Nieces or nephews? Patterns can be hard to find and techniques over-complicated. Come and sew with us and we will have or recommend the pattern of the month and source fabrics that will make cute kids clothes as seen in Hanna Andersson and Ottobre. We will focus on wearable and cute clothes (minimal closures and no ironing!) with the option to do a fancy outfit for spring. Great serger class and confidence builder-sew for them, then sew for you!

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.

  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.
