What you'll learn in this beginner sewing class:

This workshop will take place at our Greenpoint shop. By registering for an in-person workshop, you are agreeing to abide by the safety measures and cancelation policy in place. Thank you for your support as we navigate these changes!

 

For total beginners--if you've been wanting to learn to sew or you haven't touched a machine in years, this is the class for you! In just one session we'll walk you through the basics; you'll leave class with a finished elastic-waisted skirt. Here's what we'll cover:

  • Basic intro to a sewing machine, including how to sew a straight seam
  • How to measure the body properly for garment fitting
  • How to cut fabric accurately
  • Pinning and sewing seams
  • Making an elastic waistband and hem

Fabric will be available for purchase in our retail shop. (If you prefer to bring your own fabric, you'll need two yards of a medium-weight woven; we recommend cotton or cotton blends.) All tools needed to complete this class will be provided, included sewing machines courtesy of BERNINA of America.

Refund Policy

WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY

We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!
