Sewing School is designed to give you increasing levels of sewing know-how. Each class adds new techniques to enhance your skills and give you more confidence. Whether you are a complete beginner, or a skilled quilter who wants to get into garment sewing, the Sewing School classes will help you understand the steps, read and interpret pattern instructions, and give you the tools and confidence to start problem solving on your own. At the end you'll be ready to take on more complex and demanding sewing projects.

Take one or all of the classes. We have each of them on both weekdays or weekends to accommodate your schedule. They're also available for anyone 14 or older so if you have a teen at home who is keen to learn, this is a great opportunity.
