Learn More About Our Sewing Classes
All classes will be held at Sewing Lounge. The maximum class size ranges from 3 to 6 students so everyone gets lots of individual attention. Three is the minimum number of students required for a class to run.
If you don’t see what you’re looking for or the time a class is offered doesn't work with your schedule, inquire about private lessons for yourself or your group.
Skill levels indicate the minimum skill required to take a class and are as follows:
Beginner - You’re a clean slate
Beginner Plus - You can operate a machine but need to learn skills and build confidence. Commercial patterns seem confusing.
Advanced Beginner - You can operate a sewing machine, know some basic terms like grain line and seam allowance and can sort of navigate pattern instructions and yardage information.
Intermediate - You’re halfway there. No longer a beginner, but not yet totally accomplished and feel you’d benefit from some guidance.
Incredible - You’re a self-sufficient stitcher, and can handle complexity in construction.
Class and workshop fees cover the times a class of workshop is scheduled and are non-refundable unless the class is canceled due to insufficient enrollment. If you miss a class and would like to make it up, you can schedule a private lesson with the instructor which will be subject to their rates.

"Both of my girls have taken classes and camps at the Sewing Lounge. Everyone is lovely, the space is wonderful and my kiddos have amazing skills. (They even hem my clothes for me now!) I wish this had existed when I was a kid. Well done, Maggie!"
