If you do not own a sewing machine, we do have a limited number of classroom sewing machines available for use during our beginner classes. If you would like to reserve a classroom sewing machine at no additional cost, please call the store and they will reserve one for you.
If this is your first class, it is also a good idea to show up at least 15 minutes early and introduce yourself to the teacher who can help you get settled and feel confident before class begins. Making sure you are prepared and communicating with your teacher will ensure you’ll have fun while learn a new technique or skill!
If you have any questions, big or small, please give us a call and ask. We look forward to seeing you in class!
