Sewing With a Coach and Open Sewing

Sewing with a coach - First and Third Wednesday of every month 10:30 - 2:30 $15.00/hour

Our awesome sewing coach can help you problem solve and share tips and suggestions for starting, advancing, or completing your quilt, garment, bag or decor sewing project. 

Coach - Shirley Dawson. Shirley had her own garment business where she designed and made clothing for children. She's also a master quilter who has shown her quilts in numerous shows and events.

In her own words - "I am a maker and a teacher, always have been. In my previous life I taught children in the outdoors, on a river, in Toronto. Today, I am happily covered in thread and constantly inspired to create something new from fabric. And to help others do the same thing of course."

You will be welcome to use our tools and machines while sewing in our studio. (cutters, rulers, design boards, irons, etc.)
