We are delighted to announce that we will soon be offering our classes on Saturdays. So far we have been running private sewing classes on a one to one basis in the mornings and evenings at our studio which is also located at the store.
From March we will have classes available on Saturday's from 10am (2 Saturday's per month).
Classes are 2.5 hours each. You do not need to bring anything at all (If you have a sewing machine you can bring your own and we will teach you how to thread and use your own. We are fully equipped with sewing machines, sergers, thread, sewing needles, materials and all the equipment that will be required.
Each class is $100. Cash payment please. HST is charged if debit / credit cards are used as payment.
More information will be available on the website. If you are interested in taking a sewing class you can contact us directly (contact us)
Over the past three weeks, six amazing ladies have been meeting here at the store's studio for our first ever "Stitch and Bitch" sewing sessions. We met at 8pm and finished up around 10:30 for three weeks.
One week 1, each person was assigned to a sewing machine and we learned about threading the machines, threading the bobbin, and sewing straight lines ( straight-ish :-) ). We moved onto designing a tote bag and drafting a paper pattern on week two as well as some more practices on the sewing machines. Then on our final week all the hard work paid off as the individual tote bags came to life. It was so much fun, lots of laughs, lots of new things learned, and new friends have been made.
