Thursdays & Tuesdays
Guided Sewing and Quilting

In this class we will help you through your project of choice. You can work through a different project each week, or focus on one project for multiple weeks. Bring a pattern you have already started and are having trouble with or come to the class without a pattern or fabric picked out and we will help you get started. This class can be used for both woven fabric and knit fabric projects, please let us know ahead of time if you wish to work on a project using knits. During class you will get help with your project, as well as hear the advice and help the others are getting. Brand new beginners are welcome! But, students should have a basic knowledge of how to use their machines (if you don't, we offer an introduction to sewing class).

Time: Tuesdays from 10 to 12:30, and Thursdays from 2 to 4:30 pm

Cost: $25 per class

Materials Needed: Fabric, thread, your machine (or borrow one of ours), and the basic supplies you need for your machine. We will provide cutting mats for use during the class.
