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!

Stitch & Bitch Open Studio Hours

These evenings are for an escape. But not like Rupert Holmes' Escape because that song is just awful. Come hang out for open studio hours at Stitch! Do some chatting, crafting, and snacking free of charge! These have been really fun evenings so far. Please reserve your spot as space is limited. Your choice of "Comfy Seat" or "Sewing Machine Station". We've had cross stitchers, knitters, crocheters (hookers, right? lol) embroidery, quilting and more!  Feel free to bring a snack or beverage of your choice.

*Cost: FREE!

Instructor: We can share tips and tricks with each other! Always something new to learn.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14th 6-8pm

Scrappy Pet Leash

 

Every pupper, kitty, iguana, chicken, or whatever your pet is wants to be stylish in his or her own rite. Come make a leash for your fur/feather/scale baby that you won't mind hanging on the hook next to the door because it is too dang cute! Finished leash is 1.25" wide and 7 feet long. You can certainly modify if you want a shorter or slightly longer length. Just keep in mind to make it longer you will need more fabric and interfacing.

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

20-5" charm squares or fabric scraps at least 5" wide and enough to make a 90" length. Stitch has a handful of charm packs in stock that contain enough squares to make 2 leashes!

*Cost of class is $25 and includes instruction, heavyweight fusible interfacing to make a 7 foot long leash as well as a heavy duty metal clasp.

Instructor: Angie Miller

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15th 6-8:30pm

Cross Back Apron

 

In this class you will learn how to make a cross back style (Mobius) apron. You can either choose your own fabric and print the free pattern, or you can choose one of the panels from Penny Rose Designs that just require cutting and sewing to achieve the same effect! These are great for messy crafts or messy food prep! Sometimes the cute frilly aprons just don't cut it!

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

1 apron panel OR 1 1/2 yds of fabric ~58" wide (this means an apparel type fabric vs a woven to get the width)

Spool of thread to match

Fabric shears or rotary cutter

Pins

Seam Ripper (just in case)

Fabric chalk or marker if that's your jam. Some people don't like to use these.

*Cost of class is $20 for instruction + materials. If you purchase materials from Stitch for class, there is a 15% discount, but I never require you to do so.

I will need to know before class if you plan to use the panel style or if you will be bringing your own fabric so I can be prepared for everyone!
