Sunday "Sewcials"

Our Sunday "Sewcials" are a special time. Anyone interested in coming by from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm to "sew-cialize" and work on your own project, are welcome. The small fee covers use of the studio equipment and help from a sewing professional on things you are having trouble with. You must reserve your seat as space is limited.

Additional Information

There is a $35 non-refundable registration fee for each student participating in classes that will be due upon enrollment to cover the costs of new books and patterns. There are normally 8-10 projects in the books (patterns included).  Students ages 10-12 that have been attending previously will continue to use their current curriculum until it is completed and will then move on to the next level with a new book and patterns. When new books and patterns are ordered, the student will be responsible for paying the cost. The books and patterns become the property of the student and will be returned to the student when all lesson plans in the book have been completed.  


Teens and adults will start with the beginning teens and adults "kids can sew" curriculum and will then move to intermediate classes developed specifically to the skill they would like to study. We will develop this curriculum together as the class proceeds.


Tuition is due on or before the 1st class of every month.

There is a $10 late fee for unpaid tuition after the 1st class of the month.

14 days notice is required for withdrawal; otherwise tuition is still due at the beginning of the following month.


There are no makeups or credits for missed classes. The monthly tuition is always the same, regardless of the number of weekly classes per month or if the student must miss a class. The tuition is based on a 4-week month but there are many months that have 5 weeks; therefore, normally it all works out in the best interest of the student.
