Sew Trendy (1964 Rahncliff Ct., Eagan) is a new fabric store specializing in quilt fabric, minky, faux fur and some knits and other cottons. She also carries indie patterns and notions.
We’ve just started having classes in her beautiful space, mostly serger and sewing with a pattern and learn to sew. Please be sure to register for the class (below) so we know you are coming.
Learn To Sew – Pillowcase – From beginners (learn how to use your sewing machine) to advanced (just come and have fun coordinating the beautiful fabric at the store and sew with your new best friends. We’ll start where you’re at and teach you three seam finishes while constructing pillowcases that are great for gifts, gift bags (h.s. graduates?) or for yourself!
Supply list: sewing machine (or use a studio machine), machine manual if you are a beginner, thread and sewing tools-fabric can be selected and purchased at Sew Trendy.
Upcoming Dates: Thursday, June 15, 6-8 pm
Thursday, July 6, 6-8 pm

Sewing With a Pattern – Learn how to read (decipher 🙂 a commercial or indie pattern, cut out and construct a garment. We recommend a simple skirt or pajama pant for starters-woven cotton is a great fabric to begin with. It takes a few patterns to gain confidence and experience so take this class as often as you’d like. You will most likely need a second class to complete a garment. You can sign up for the “Sew Your Own” class to finish garment if desired.
Class supply list: sewing machine, pattern, fabric-choose from store if you’d like, basic sewing supplies, any notions needed for pattern.
Please email or call if you need help choosing pattern or determining size. (952-201-3863) Email:[email protected]

Sew Your Own-If you’ve sewn with a pattern and are ready to add new techniques (zippers, collars) and begin the journey to a well-fit garment, this is your class. We can help you choose pattern and fabric if you email us or bring your supplies and we’ll get started. Please take care if measuring yourself and choose the correct pattern size.
