Our patterns are not difficult to sew. I will be instructing the classes and be there to help, so have no fear - you are here to learn. Fabric choice is what makes some of the garments more difficult to sew and I can help you with your choices. Don’t be afraid to take a class if you think you are not experienced enough, this is why the word EASY is in all the descriptions!

Even if you are an experienced sewer, come to class and spend some quality time sewing! Most garments do not have zippers, linings, difficult fitting issues, or hand sewing. They are all about Easy Fit and Easy Sewing.

Take some time to read the pattern descriptions to find out what you will learn during the class. The format is very conducive to individual attention. Pattern alterations, pant fitting, fabric and pattern compatibility are just a few of the topics we can cover.

If you have a friend or two that may be interested in scheduling a weekend workshop or alternative day please call to work out the details.

The best part about the classes is that we have fun!
