Sew Sew has classes for all levels of experience. If you've never used a sewing machine, begin by taking one of our STARTER classes. We'll teach you to thread the machine, stitch a straight line, and fix the mistakes that are bound to happen. Then we'll practice your new skills on a simple sewing project. Once you are comfortable with the machine you can move up to a BEGINNER class. We'll still help those that need reminding of how to thread a machine, but we'll work on a slightly more involved project that will help hone your new skills. Take as many of these BEGINNER classes as you'd like. Once you've mastered that level you'll be ready to move up to INTERMEDIATE classes, like apparel and quilting.
We do not require you to start at a particular level for your first class. If you already have experience with a machine you can begin wherever you like.
Some classes require you to shop for fabric beforehand, so that you can pre-wash the material before class. If you wish for your finished product to be machine-washable, this is an excellent idea. Some fabrics will shrink in the washer or dryer, so pre-washing will allow you to skip the headache of pulling a lopsided apron from your dryer after first use.
You do not need to bring anything sewing-related with you to class (unless you pre-purchased materials like fabric, interfacing, etc). We have the sewing machines, the rotary cutters and scissors, the thread, everything you need for your class.
You CAN, however, bring a bottle of wine or 6-pack to class, if you'd like. Sew Sew Studio is BYOB. We can not serve your alcohol, but you're free to make yourselves at home within our facility. BYOS, too, if you think you might get hungry ;)
Please note that you will be asked to sign a waiver before class if you wish to drink in the studio. Insurance regulations state that we can not be held responsible for accidents or injuries involving those who bring alcohol onto the premises.
We have an embroidery machine, serger, and cover stitch machine in-house. If you would like to rent time on one of these machines, please give us a call. We're happy to tell you about the prices and get you on the schedule. These machines will also be available during classes in the studio when projects dictate use.
We would love to host your corporate team-building event, birthday party, baby shower, or private girl's night out. If you are interested in booking a private party of this nature, please call the shop for more details.
We would also love to host home-school groups, scout troops, quilting guild meetups and more. Again, please call so that we can discuss your particular ideas further. Being a new shop, we may not have all the specifics worked out but we're happy to cater to groups of any kind.
