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!

Small World Suitcase-Tues, Sep 24th 6-9pm

THIS CLASS REQUIRES SOME PREP BEFORE ARRIVAL! Please read.

After signing up, you will receive your pattern. Prior to arriving the evening of the class, I am asking that you have all the pieces cut and fused. The construction of the bag is doable in an evening if this is completed. If you have questions or get stuck, I am more than happy to help you so that you arrive prepared and ready to go!

I love this little zip case that could be a handy travel bag for mom, dad, and kids alike! This is an intermediate sewing class, meaning you should be comfortable with basic sewing and have some experience under your belt.

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

2/3 yd cotton fabric for outside of case

2/3 yd cotton fabric for lining of case

2/3 yd fusible fleece (available at Stitch)

2 1/4 yd medium wt fusible interfacing (available at Stitch)

Scrappy Rope Bowl-Tues October 8th 6-9pm

Come 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 bring/purchse prior to class:

Approximately 1 yard worth of fabric scraps PRECUT to approx 3/4" wide. This 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.

*Cost of class $28 which includes instruction as well as 50 yards of rope and a glue stick to construct a bowl with a base of 7" across.

Jelly Roll Rug Squares 2 Sessions

Tuesday Jan 14th & Tuesday Jan 28th 6-8:30pm

A bit of a different take on the jelly roll rug we did a few times last year. The added benefit on this one is that you don't have to worry about keeping that large oval flat the whole time you sew, but you do have to bind the edges once you are done.

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

1 Jelly Roll that contains 40-2.5" strips

1/3 yd coordinating fabric to use for binding

Large spool of thread (600+ yds) or 2 spools if smaller

Basic sewing supplies-scissors, pins, etc.

What is provided: 50 yds batting on a roll precut at 2.5 inches wide. Instruction on project completion.

*Cost of class for 2 sessions and batting roll=$55.
