School Of Sewing II, 2023 Winter Session

Part 2 of our foundational class. If you have completed School of Sewing and want to continue doing steadily more challenging projects, this is for you! Please call the shop at (203) 421-6853 to be put on a waitlist for the class. It rotates between a day class (11-2pm) and an evening class (6-9pm).


Our basic roster of classes: if you missed one, don’t worry, it’ll be back!

  • School of Sewing – Learn the basics of sewing in this series. Perfectly targeted towards beginning and even intermediate but rusty sewists, you’ll sew multiple projects from drawstring bags to French-seamed pillowcases, learning basic techniques you’ll use again and again throughout your sewing journey.
  • Intro to Quilting – Always wanted to quilt but never knew where to start? Have your attempts left you frustrated? This is the class for you! Build good habits and techniques from the start. We’ll walk you through finishing a quilt block from fabric to finish in this series for quilters to be.
  • Garment Workshops – Itching to make something you can wear? We’ve got you covered. With classes ranging from simple to more intricate, we’ll sew through some fan-favorite indie patterns and teach you the basics of garment construction.
  • Bag Workshops – Never be intimidated by a bag pattern again! In this workshop series, our instructors will cover everything from cork to heavy-duty interfacing, and how to use basic techniques to your advantage in any bag pattern you may come across. We’ve picked out some of our best-selling patterns to teach you!
