Description

After School Sewing Club: Meets Weekly on Thursdays

  • Session Length: Class lasts approximately 90-120 minutes and begins at 3:45 until 5:45pm on Tuesdays, depending upon your school dismissal time.
  • Age and Experience: We welcome students 7 years of age and up, thru teens. No prior sewing experience is necessary. For children who already have sewing skills, we will have more advanced projects.
  • Equipment: We provide all instruction, sewing machines, supplies, and fabric.
  • Pricing: Pricing depends on the number of classes you wish to sign up for. Each class is $35 if purchasing one at a time. You may purchase a package of 4 classes for $115 and you may schedule these however you wish (once a week, once a month, etc.) You must call or come in the shop to schedule your classes if purchasing the series. REMEMBER: We have a family discount (you must call the shop and pay over the phone to receive the discount) of 2 kids from same family may register for $60 total for the 2 children for each class.
  • Projects: Each class will focus on one project; however, your child may work on a 'work in progress' during class times as well, as supervision and instruction will always be available during class.

What Will They Make?

Oodles of fun stuff! We like to take into account the interests and experience of our students in each class. On our first day, we do a fun starter project. We then ask what they are interested in making over the course of our time together. After that, the sewing world is ours to play in, while fitting in as many fun sewing projects as we can! Some previous projects have been:

  • Pillows with secret pockets, pillow cases
  • Monster Stuffies, Dolls
  • Messenger Bags, tote bags
  • Circle Skirts
  • Pajama Bottoms
  • Bow Ties and Ties
  • Shirts, swimsuit coverups, kimonos
  • Towels with Animal Hoods

  • Appliqued Tote Bags
  • Holiday Gifts
  • Quilting and more!
