Every new student needs to take our Introductory Lesson in order to learn about safety, anatomy and threading the machine. The project is a simple felt pouch and students learn about straight stitch, back stitch, seam allowances, sewing curves and corners and sewing on a button.

 

The 90 minute Introductory Lesson can either be a stand alone lesson or part of the "6 Pack For Beginners" which we highly recommend as it is a great introduction to machine sewing and our easy to use, speed controlled machines make it easy for young sewers to develop good sewing habits as they learn a wonderful life skill. (The 6 Pack includes 6 x 90 minute studio lessons.)

Students choosing stand alone projects must complete the Introductory Lesson and the pre-requisites listed with each project. Students must use our machines unless we have agreed for you to bring your own.

Children must be 8 years old or above for a sewing machine lesson or 6 and above for hand sewing.

Call (917) 885 7716 or email us to find out more about booking a private lesson.
