Classes & Workshops

See below for the latest update for our classes due to Covid-19.

We’re more than just a retail store! We have a studio area with a huugge table (called Humongous) where we hold regular classes and workshops.

In-house classes are coordinated and run by Vanessa. Vanessa trained as a dressmaker and has been sewing all her life! She has been an adult educator in her previous workplaces and enjoys spending time with each student in a class.

“My students tell me that I’m very patient and I never want a student to feel ‘left behind’. Not everyone learns (or sews) at the same pace. I like to make sure people are  comfortable with a new technique before they leave the training”

We’re always interested in what you’re making and we love to see people finishing their projects.
