Summer Sewing for Kids and Adults!

Play more with your sewing machine.  If you know how to use your sewing machine, you are ready to tackle a pattern.  Whether you just finished beginning sewing or have been sewing longer, Jess will help you choose a project from a pattern that will challenge you, but not make you cry.  From pj bottoms to skirts and dresses, you are the designer!  You choose the pattern that inspires you.  If time allows, a second project may be chosen.
Skill Level:  Advanced Beginner
Ages:  9-13
Fee:  $155
Instructor: Jessica Barden-Bandelin
Monday thru Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., June 15 to 19

This is the perfect place to start.  You will learn to use your sewing machine, sew two fun projects on the machine (a pillowcase and drawstring backpack) and two fun hand sewing projects, and more as time permits. *Class fee includes all supplies needed for the projects.
Skill level:  Beginner
Fee:  $175
Ages:  9-13
Instructor:  Jessica Barden-Bandelin
Monday thru Friday, 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., June 15 to 19


Need to make a Victorian ballgown?  Want some help fitting your 18th century stays?  Do the gowns of Jane Austen's era make your heart flutter?  Whatever historic sewing project you have in mind, Elizabeth will help your dreams materialize.  Whether your thing is hardcore accuracy and tons of hand sewing, or you just want to make a fun costume, you'll find guidance and inspiration here.  Some sewing outside of class and some independent research will be required.
Skill Level:  Intermediate
Fee:  $135.00
Instructor:  Elizabeth Merritt
Fridays, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., June 12, 26; July 10, 24, August 14 


Well, that may be a lofty goal, but we want to help you solve the puzzle of choosing the right pattern for your body and the best fabric for the pattern (or vice versa if you are starting with a specific fabric).  Class discussion will cover choosing the right pattern size, common fit solutions as they pertain to pattern/fabric choice, our favorite patterns and why, and fabric characteristics and their suitability for specific garments.  Appropriate for beginners (cut down on first timer mistakes) and experienced sewists (we'll focus on current patterns and available fabrics).  We have experience across the spectrum of pattern companies and local fabric stores and would love to help you avoid the mismatches we've made.
Skill Level:  All
Fee:  $30
Instructor:  Material Girls (Debbie & Kristin)
Saturday, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., June 13
