Every new student needs to take our Introductory Lesson in order to learn about safety, anatomy and threading the machine, and the project is a simple felt pouch.


We highly recommend our "6 Pack For Beginners"  as it covers the fundamentals of machine sewing but we also offer stand alone items. Each stand alone item indicates the pre-required projects.

If you are interested in customizing your sewing lessons please contact us.

We have instructors in Westchester, Upper Westchester, Connecticut and New York City.
