Sewing Classes & Events

All our sewing classes run from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, unless otherwise stated. Be sure to bring your sewing machine, your basic sewing tools plus the items on the supply list below for an enjoyable and productive session.

Parking in our driveway is available but space is limited. Pull right up as we can fit up to 3 cars. If there is room in the front yard parking area, please pull in parallel to the road as tight as you can to the other cars (no bumping allowed) so there will be room for more sewers. There is direct access through the big door at the end of the driveway, then just a few steps down to our comfortable classroom. We do not provide meals so please be sure to pack a lunch for our full day classes. We are also located just a short walk from Twiggs Coffee Roasters if you wish to grab a bite nearby.

Please stop in or contact us to confirm your attendance to ensure that there’s a space reserved for you. It’s the only way we can guarantee you a spot.
