Sign Up Now for Spring 2016 Classes
We have perennial favorites and new choices for kids and adults, including a one-session class in how to use a sewing machine, a traditional quilting series, a more advanced class to sew a skirt and top from a pattern you make yourself, and several choices of knitting classes.

We assess, clean, oil, and tune-up most sewing machines, new and old. We also troubleshoot problems with tension and stitch and show you how to get the best performance from your machine. Make an appointment by email to have your machine tuned up.
