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!

Bloom and Grow Serger Quilt

Saturday April 20, June 15, August 10 and October 12, 2024    from 10am to 2pm            Class Fee: $149
This class is FOUR sessions—you must come to each session.                       Instructor: Melody Munson                                                                           

Make this gorgeous, modern quilt with your overlocker / chain and cover machine!

Your overlocker / chain and cover machine can be used for more than garment making or finishing edges, and if you're a quilter you will love the techniques you will learn in this class and how they can be applied to your quilt tops! In this four session class you will become very comfortable with your overlocker / chain and cover machine and piecing blocks with it, using the chain stitch to applique pieces after you've finished the edges with a rolled hem, topstitching details with decorative threads in the loopers and much more. Come into the store to see Melody's sample quilt top and all the gorgeous details.

If you have a serger but don't have a chain and cover / combo machine, you can still take this class and learn most of the techniques with your serger! There are some parts of the project you will need to modify or complete with your sewing machine instead, for example you will topstitch the applique pieces with your sewing machine instead.

Pattern fee and class materials are NOT included in the class fee. Advance registration is required—call and register today!

Knit Pants Fit Masterclass

Friday, August 23, 2024    from 10am to 1pm    AND                                            Class Fee: $99
Saturday, August 24, 2024   from 10am to 4pm                                                    Instructor: Kari Kechter                                                                          

Elevate your wardrobe with confidence and style!

Sewing pants can often feel as baffling as solving a complex math problem. Join Kari for an immersive two day class where you will master the art of creating timeless and custom -fit knit pants. In this hands-on workshop, you will achieve a perfect fit that complements your body's contours. Experienced instructor Kari Kechter will walk you through the steps, ensuring your pants will be custom fitted just for you. Once your pattern is perfectly adjusted, you will proceed to cut and sew your very own pair of knit pants, right in the classroom.

You'll be using the Silhouette Patterns Three-Piece Yoga Pant #3400, a classic pull-on pants design. Prior to the workshop you'll receive comprehensive instructions to baste together a trial / test garment. These test pants will be created with extra wide seam allowances. During the class we will custom fit your pants (be sure to bring plenty of pins), and following the fitting session you'll make any necessary adjustments to the test garment. You'll try on the test garment one more time to ensure the final fit is spot on, and then with your pattern perfected and tailored to your body, you will proceed to cut and sew your pants in class. By the end of the second day of class, you will leave with a pair of expertly crafted, custom-fitted pants that you can proudly wear.

Project materials and pattern are NOT included in the class fee. Advance registration is required—call and register today! Once you're registered for class, we'll email you the pre-class prep instructions. Please be sure we have your email address when you register.
