Cancellations up to 24 hours in advance incur no penalty if the minimum number of attendees is maintained. Otherwise, and always in the case of no-shows (except in the cases of medical emergency and family bereavement) a 100% penalty of the tuition (not including materials fees, if any) is levied.

Beginning sewing is a lot like advanced duct taping. If you can make it out of tape and paper you have what it takes to make it out of cloth and thread. Make tool bags, tactical clothing, trim for your woodwork, upholster your car, or go traditional and make a quilt. 
This course outlines the basics of needle selection, thread types, proper fabric selection, winding a bobbin, and thread tension- all of which are important components that make up a successful project. Learn tricks that will make the machines work every time. This class is divided between lecture and lab- students will have the opportunity to sew a set of sample stitches with each machine to practice what they have learned. 
Stop living in fear! The next time you have a project that involves fabric, charge forward and make it happen. Learning the basics of sewing opens a world of possibilities for future designs and projects. 
A $6 material fee covers each student's thread and sample fabric. 

Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete any necessary paperwork. Our shop can be a little tricky to find so we suggest giving yourself extra time for traffic and parking. 

**Please wear closed-toe shoes. No sandals**
