Classes

For a memorable and interactive gift, consider booking a class! Give somebody an experience to look forward to in the New Year. Students will get to take home their creations and some valuable new skills!

Scout Tee... Hack it!

Take this classic tee and turn it into a sleeve-featuring wonder! In this class, you will learn how to make sleeve variations using the basic sleeve that comes in this pattern. Suitable for anyone with basic sewing experience, this class is a great introduction into patternmaking and alterations! Students will learn techniques they can apply to many different patterns.

The dates for this class will be February 10th and 17th, from 10am to 12 noon.

The Moneta Dress Class

This class is designed for those sewists ready to begin sewing with knits! Your teacher, Alicia, will take you through this Colette pattern step by step. You will learn the differences between sewing with knits vs wovens, and be able to use knit-specific tools. At the end of the class you will leave with a beautiful new dress, and you'll be ready to tackle other projects involving knit fabric.

This class will take place on Saturdays, January 6th and 13th, 9am until 12 noon. Click on the link below to view materials and to sign up!

Chanel Jacket... Hack it!

This class was so popular the last time we held it, we've decided to list it again! Suitable for anyone with basic sewing experience, students will gain lots of new skills: working with new tools and couture finishing techniques, applying trims and embellishments, tailoring a jacket fit for your body, critical analysis and personal interpretation of a design.

We're certain that any sewist would be thrilled to receive this class as a gift! The jacket is so open to customization with different fabric and trim choices, and it will make a fabulous addition to any Spring wardrobe. 

Held over 4 sessions, the new dates are January 14th and 28th, February 11th and 25th, 1–4pm.

Free motion quilting with bernina rulers

Quilters will love our new free motion quilting class, which will focus on using the Bernina Ruler Kit. This is the ideal next step for those who have tried free motion and would like to explore a new tool.  No need to own the ruler kit to take the course – this is a great way to test it out! If you know an enthusiastic quilter, why not treat them to this fun class?!
