This class is one of our favorites. Why? Because the only way is up from here. It's a chance to experience that all-too-rare, but wonderfully exhilarating opportunity to try something completely new and then walk away feeling really good about it.
Don't know the difference between a bobbin and a baste stitch? That's ok. We'll figure it all out together.
This class will cover the basics of sewing:
- Hand Sewing/Embroidery Skills
- Machine Sewing Skills
- Beginning Clothing Construction Techniques
Tools (scissors, cutting mat, needles, seam rippers, sewing machines) will be available for use in the shop though supplies are limited, so you are welcome to bring your own as well.

Gardening season is upon us! Jump into summer by making your own clay garden stakes — perfect for labeling herbs, roses, or any plants in your boxes and beds.
Everyone 10 and older is welcome (children ages 6-9 with adults)
Because of firing, stakes will be ready for pickup 7-10 days later — they are a perfect addition to a garden, make a great shower, birthday, and end of the year gift!
