  • This is a beginner sewing class for individuals ages 14 and up. During the weeks of sewing instruction, students will learn beginner sewing skills by sewing their own custom garment, a beautiful maxi skirt.


    Sewing classes will take place on Mondays  from 6pm - 8:30pm. It is very important that students arrive on time for class and be available for all sewing lessons. If you miss a session it may mean that you do not complete your project with instruction. I do however, provide an online video tutorial that may be helpful for any missed lessons.


    The sewing class price is $299.00. This price includes all sewing equipment, instruction supplies, and fabric. If you decide to purchase your own fabric, you may do so at your cost.

    If you would like a payment plan, upon checkout of the class please select the "Pay By Afterpay" service or Sezzle. Both of these free services allow you the opportunity to pay the class fee in four installments. Simply click "Afterpay" as an option upon checkout or select Sezzle (They are two companies that provide the same service. some have mentioned an error prompt with Afterpay, if this happens, please select Sezzle. They are competitors and provide the same service).
