I am so excited you want to join open studio sewing classes. Tired of cutting out on the dining table or the floor? Are seams not lining up and zippers are just scary? Is reading a sewing pattern like a foreign language? Are you looking for friends to sew with? I’d love to share my sewing knowledge with you in open studio class time.
I offer 6-week open studio sessions on Sunday afternoon, Monday night or Thursday night in my Chicago studio. In open studio, you can work on any project you want. It is open to all skill levels. You get access to everything you need to create what you want - a huge cutting table, dress forms, sewing machines and sergers, and of course - me and my expertise. You can work on whatever you like whether its sewing based on a pattern, upcycling, tailoring, working on your pattern drafting, draping — or anything related to sewing really. Many people like it so much they end up signing up for further sessions they enjoy working on their projects and the camaraderie amongst the students.
Bring your basic supplies:
Fabric (as indicated on pattern)
18" x 2" Clear Ruler
During your 6 weeks of open studio sewing classes you make your projects come to life. We have sewing machines, sergers, embroidery machines, dress forms and a huge cutting table!
Everything you could need for your project.
The open-studio structure makes it less like a class. Instead, you’re in charge of your projects and your pace. These sessions are a chance to practice sewing in the presence of an expert who is always ready to answer questions, help with stitches, and teach you new techniques. It is a comfortable place for people of all skill levels, whether you’re a beginner, or have been sewing for years. The supportive community that is formed in these classes keeps people from getting discouraged and helps everyone come out a sewing success. If you are interested in more of a structured class check out the basic sewing class called stitch book or the basic pattern drafting and draping class.
You must follow all regulations by wearing a face mask at all time and using hand sanitizer and keeping your space wiped down. Everyone will have a special station with a sewing machine and a serger. If you would like an embroidery or cover stitch machine set up for your project just let me know ahead of time.
* No refunds on classes. You can reschedule or choose another date to start but we keep the classes super small and can not offer refunds.
