Come into our studio and take a video class of your choice. These classes allow you the opportunity to sew by the hour, at your own pace! Pick a subject of interest from our video library, grab a computer, sit at one of our machines (or bring your own) and sew until your heart is content. Work independently. Make friends. Learn something new! The shared sewing studio has laptops, sewing machines, serger, irons, tables, dress form mannequins, sewing tools and pattern making tools for your use. Just bring your own fabric and thread, pattern paper or yarn (depending on the class) and you're ready to go. Don't know how to use a sewing machine?
