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.
AccuQuilt—A Date with BOB (Block On Board) Dies
Thursday, November 17, 2022 from 1pm to 3pm Class Fee $15 Instructor: Teresa Stamp
This class is in person. Class size is limited--register early!
This beginner friendly quilt piecing class is designed around AccuQuilt's fabric die cutting machines and the Block on Board (BOB) dies. You'll be amazed at how fast and easy it is to cut out all the pieces for an entire quilt block with just one die and a single pass through the die cutter! During class you'll cut and sew your Sawtooth block, a GO! Value Die that features three perfectly coordinated shapes that produce dozens of block variations. You'll see lots of ideas and samples of how to use your blocks, and we'll even take a virtual field trip to the AccuQuilt website to show you where to find more inspiration.
Use our AccuQuilt dies and die cutters during class and ask about the AccuQuilt Qube die sets to be entered into a prize drawing! This is the perfect class to try out the AccuQuilt die cutting systems and see how they can make your quilting projects faster, easier and more enjoyable.
In the Beginning
Saturdays, November 5 and 19, 2022 from 10am to 2pm Class Fee $35 Instructor: Marla Bryant
This class is in person. Class size is limited and classes fill quickly--register early!
This beginning to advanced level class is for adults with little or no sewing experience, or for skilled sewers who would like help with specific projects. Start with a project appropriate for your skill level, then work at your own pace on different projects. Use our classroom machines and learn new skills with each project. This class is offered on the first and third Saturdays of most months--see the Longmont Calendar for specific dates. (Project materials are not included in class fee. There are kits available for purchase for some projects. Additional supplies will vary according to your project.)
Embroidery Club will return in January 2023! Instructor: Debi Urban
Embroidery Club is on a break until January 2023! Plan to join us next year and choose from in person class, live Zoom meeting to watch the recorded video, or annual membership to recorded videos.
Embroidery Club will be back in January 2023! Debi is busy planning a fun filled, educational new year of embroidery club just for you! She's getting all the kit supplies ordered and embroidering samples like crazy, so stay tuned for information about upcoming sessions of Embroidery Club for 2023—coming soon!
Come to class in person.
In person class fee: $15 (does not include kit fee / project materials) If you join us for class in person, please bring your own embroidery machine, embroidery module, hoops and notions / accessories. Use our Isacord thread in class or bring your own. You MUST register in advance—class size is limited to 10 people.
For an optional annual membership fee of $60, you'll receive unlimited access to the recorded video showing you how to do the project, available to watch at your convenience until June 2023. You can watch the video as you do your project so that you can pause and do each step as you go along. You can still purchase a kit for that month's project, subject to availability--we are happy to mail the kit to you (postage fees apply) and email embroidery designs to you when they are included with the kit (some months the project will require you to purchase and download the embroidery design yourself). Please call the store at 303-485-6681 to purchase an annual membership.

Illusions Block of the Month Quilt

This is a virtual class. You need email and internet access to take this class.
Get ready to expand your quilting skills as you create this beautiful block of the month quilt, designed by Scott Flanagan. Your class fee gives you access to a monthly live Zoom meeting where Marla shows the assembly of each month's block(s) and answers your questions. Then, you'll have unlimited access to a recorded video of how to make each month's block until June 2023. We recommend you tune into the live Zoom meeting and follow along so that you can see how the block is done and ask any questions you might have, then make your block with confidence, having seen it already done, and take advantage of the recorded video to guide you.
New for 2022: monthly in person workshop! Join us on the fourth Saturday of the month in person for a Block of the Month Workshop at no additional charge. Marla and Teresa will be available to give you extra help with block instructions, assembly, or answer whatever questions you have about the Block of the Month quilts. Or maybe you just want to get together with your classmates and join us to sit and sew, work on the blocks and enjoy some social time. Bring your sewing machine and project supplies or whatever you need to work on your Illusions Quilt or Moonlight Quilt. Workshop dates are listed on the Class Calendar.
Project kits are available for this class for optional purchase in the fabrics shown in the store sample. There are two kits--background fabrics (white / off white or black / gray) and color fabrics. Borders are not included so that you can choose your own fabric. All fabric in these kits is available for additional purchase (for backing, borders or extra of any of the fabrics should you need more)—please ask for them when you come into the store, as they are only available to students enrolled in this class until the class is finished.
