Private Sewing Lessons

Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced sewist looking to expand your skills, our private sewing lessons offer tailored instruction to meet your unique needs and aspirations.

To get started, fill out the form below, and our dedicated class coordinator will work with you via email to match you with an instructor and find a time to use the class space in the shop. We will try to accommodate your day and time preferences as best we can, but please note our instructors have limited availability.

Once your lesson is confirmed, we'll send you an invoice based on the agreed upon arrangements. It's important for us to pay our instructors a living wage, and we've set our hourly rate for private lessons with that in mind. The price for private lessons is $50/hour. You'll make a deposit for minimum of 1 hour when you book and pay the remainder at the end of your lesson. 

Unlock your full potential as a maker and book your private lesson. Get ready to stitch, learn, and create something beautiful!

Age Range: This class is designed for adults 18+. If you're looking for kids sewing classes we recommend checking out our neighbor Tomato Tomato Creative.
