Class Schedule

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CLASSES AT STITCH:

I have available in the shop, 6 Ever Sewn machines that are available to be used free of charge if participating in a class.  You are also more than welcome to bring your own machine, if you are more comfortable using that.  All classes will specify cost for the instruction as well as note any fabric or supplies that will need to be purchased specific to the project. 

Always plan to bring along your basics like thread, scissors, pins, pincushion, marking pen, etc. Each sewing station is set up with machine, lighting, and a mini press board and iron to be shared among 2 machines, so no need to bring those items.  If you happen to forget one of the basics, there are also supplies available for purchase at the shop.

To register for classes, go to the home page here and look under New Arrivals for the most recently posted classes.  You can simply choose the class you would like to register for and checkout online. If the class you would like isn't visible, you can do a quick search using the word "class" and it should bring up all available options.

Cancellation policy: If you will be unable to attend a class (hey, life happens!), please notify me as soon as possible, but no less than 24 hours in advance to receive a full refund.  If you are unable to provide notice 24 hours in advance, a gift certificate in the amount of the class will be issued to you. It is absolutely acceptable to send someone in your place as well, if you are in a pinch. What a nice little surprise for a friend!

*If you purchase supplies/fabric from Stitch for a class, please enjoy a 15% discount on those items on me!

Scrappy Rope Bowl-Thurs, Oct 1st 5:30-8:30pm

Learn how to make a scrappy rope basket and use up all the pretty fabric scraps you weren't sure what to do with!

What you need to purchase/collect prior to class:

Approximately 1 yard (will use less than this, but always good to be prepared) worth of fabric scraps PRECUT to approx 3/4" wide. These don't have to be perfect, but having your strips cut is essential to being able to complete this project during class. The longer your strips, the less you will have to join more in with your glue stick. But the point is to use scraps, so they all may not be super long. I would refrain from strips that are less than 10-12 inches unless you like a challenging, tedious task.

Matching or coordinating thread, at least 600 yards. Pay attention to how much is on the spool you pick up. Cotton + Steel spools at Stitch have 600yds.

School glue stick.

A heavy duty needle will be provided in the machine, but if you would like to make more at home, you will need these as well. Sometimes say "denim" or "jean". Any size from 14 to 18 will work.

*Cost of class $28 which includes instruction and the cotton clothesline rope to construct a bowl with a base of 7" across.

Instructor: Angie Miller

Simple Skirt-Thurs, Oct 15th 6-8:30pm

A few of you have been asking about doing a simple skirt. I found this tutorial on Pinterest that looks like just the ticket for a fast, simple skirt. If you end up liking it, you could whip out an entire wardrobe's worth pretty quickly. This tutorial can be modified based on height and waist measurements, so can be for big, small, short, and tall!

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

One yard of 55-60 inch wide fabric that’s soft and drapey. This could be a jersey knit, rayon, or a variety of fabrics. You want some stretch and for it to be comfy. Stitch carries a few knits, but you will likely want to do some browsing and bring this with you.

You will also want to wash and dry your fabric per the instructions. It is important when constructing garments to launder your fabric the same way which you will normally launder it to prevent shrinking after construction.

Elastic (1 to 1.5 inches wide) an inch shorter than your waist measurement. Most prepackaged elastic is 3 yards, so that will definitely be sufficient for a couple skirts or more.

Thread to match.

Basic sewing supplies (shears, rotary cutter if you prefer, pins, marking pencil or chalk)

Cost of class=$25 which includes instruction to complete project.

Instructor: Angie Miller

 

Self Binding Baby Blanket, Tues, Oct 20th 6-8pm

Stitch finally got some deliciously soft and scrumptious minky cuddle fabric in house and now I want to do this class so that you can make amazing handmade baby gifts for everyone! Ok, maybe just those people that have babies, but seriously, can someone make me a giant-sized one?

This class is appropriate for beginners with minimal sewing knowledge.

What you will need to bring/purchase prior to class:

  • 1.5 yards (for a 45” piece) Shannon Minky Cuddle (Stitch has 3 color choices in stock at this time)
  • 1 yard cotton quilting fabric or double gauze if you are going gaga for baby blankets!
  • 12.5” Square Clear Ruler-so I have one that we can share and will also have these available for sale if you decide these are going to be your go-to gift for bambino season.
  • Coordinating Thread
  • Marking Pen
  • Scissors or Rotary Cutter

Cost of class=$20 and includes instruction and use of ruler to square corners.
