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 the Classes tab in the drop down menu.  You can simply choose the class you would like to register for and checkout online. 

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!

Fabric Pumpkin Class

I love these plump, fabric pumpkins. Make them in traditional colors, or go a little crazy! Requires a variety of skills, including machine and hand stitching. A great combo of sewing and crafting just in time for fall decor!

We will be making the Medium Size Pumpkin for this class session. Pattern also includes a Small and Large size. 

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class

Basic sewing supplies including; scissors, small cutting mat/rotary cutter, thread, pins and/or clips, fabric marking tool, needle for hand sewing.

Small package of polyfil stuffing or similar.

Fat quarter of fabric to be used for pumpkin. If you want to do varying strips, bring 2 coordinating fabrics.

Skein DMC Embroidery Floss to stitch details on your leaves. You can be funky with this or just go with a dark brown/black color if sticking to natural colors.

I would encourage participants to have an early lunch or brunch before class.  You may bring a small snack and a drink as long as the top closes. We will take a brief stretch break, snack, bathroom break mid class.
