Registration is easy! Sign up for classes right online or in-store.
Out of respect for designers and makers, each student must have their own original legal pattern, when applicable. Required pattern information will be in each class description.
You must bring a sewing machine in working order. We highly recommend bringing your sewing machine manual with you in case of any glitches!
Machine rentals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fees apply.
