Beginning Sewing 2 - 3 different sessions

You need to plan to attend all three classes and when you register, the fee is for all three classes -- but not for the additional materials for your projects.    Read carefully as in some cases, kits have been put together so you can focus on your projects.

The Beginning Sewing 2 classes are intended to introduce additional techniques to someone new to sewing, who has completed our first Beginning Sewing class.  This set of classes is an add-on to our original Beginning Sewing Class series.   At the end of this set of three classes, attendees will be able to use straight and decorative stitches for top stitching/edge stitching, create a pocket that has a zipper opening, make a drawstring bag, and sew an easy garment (pj pants).  

Any non-sale purchases you make at the Sewing Studio for use in class will receive a 20% discount.  Please be sure to let the person at the register know you are buying supplies for a class, particularly if you are in the store on a day prior to your first class. On class days, any purchase for non-sale items you make in the store will also be given a discount of 20%.

  •        Practice edge stitching using a straight stitch

If we have a weather event or sickness arise, we will do our best to re-schedule when you can attend.   

In addition to the class fee you will pay when you sign up, there will be fees for additional materials you will need as you complete each class.   

We keep this class at a very low student to teacher ratio to allow you to receive the individual attention you need for this type of class.    We must however have 2 to move forward with this class.

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: This group of 3 classes is the follow-up series to the Beginning Sewing 1 classes.
Instructor: Cheryl Mark and Michelle Lewis
