Sewing, Quilting and Embroidery Classes for Everyone

Our staff teaches sewing, quilting and embroidery classes featuring a wide variety of projects for different skill levels. We've even got sewing classes for kids! Most of our classes are open to owners of any brand of sewing or embroidery machine (unless specifically stated in the class description)—all you have to know are the basic functions of your machine and how it works. Please read our Class Policies before you enroll for your class.

Below is a preview of what's coming up at The Presser Foot. Please click the link in the class listing to view the entire class description on the calendar page and to see the link to the supply list. Class fee does not include supplies unless specifically stated. Please review and download the supply list before you register for the class.

Please enroll for your class by calling the store at least two days  prior to class day so that our instructors can have enough kits, handouts or other class materials for you. There may be some preparation work required before class day—if this is the case it will be noted on the class supply list, so please be sure you enroll in class enough in advance that you can complete the prep work!

We add new classes frequently. Don't see what you want? Get a couple of your friends together and ask us about creating a class just for you! To see complete details about each class and to download the supply list for that class, visit the calendar page for the store location the class will be held at and click the class listing on the calendar.

Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 10am                              Instructors: Melody Munson and BERNINA Educators

Click here to join the LIVE Zoom meeting on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 10am.
Meeting ID:   849 3680 3967
Passcode:   872137

November's project is a Stand-up Notions Pouch. It’s time to reinvent the pencil bag! For the sewing lesson this month we will be creating a stand-up pouch, similar in size to a pencil bag, to store all of your sewing notions. You can leave it stationary at home or zip it up to take on-the-go. This lesson will help you install zippers with ease, even on “sticky” materials, using BERNINAnon-stick presser feet. Other techniques include seaming, edgestitching, and piping (optional).

Remember, your annual club membership gives you unlimited access to the recorded video of how to make your project on the Community Studio page in the Members section of the website. We recommend you tune into the live Zoom meeting and follow along so that you can see how the project is done and ask any questions you might have. Then you can make your project with confidence, having seen it already done, and take advantage of the recorded video to guide you as you go!
