April 19, 6pm: How to Use a Sewing Machine
Have a machine you don’t know how to use and it didn’t come from Sew Simple? We can teach you how to use it while making a simple project. Perfect for someone who has gotten a vintage machine, a machine from the big box store, or even a refresher course for someone returning to sewing after a long time. Don’t have a machine? We can make arrangements to use one of ours.

April 26, 6pm Introduction to Kimberbell Club
Folks everywhere love the happy, cheery, and colorful designs from Kimberbell. Come to this class to be introduced to the club and see what we have to offer you! Club is presented in a lecture/demo format, no need to lug in a big machine.

May 3, 6pm Free Motion Quilting with Rulers
Amy’s signature class, learn how you can use rulers and specialized templates to create straight lines and smooth curves on your sewing machine or sit-down long arm machine. This class is good for those with some beginner free motion skills and experienced alike.

May 10, 6pm Artistic 16SD Rental Program
Did you know you can rent time on our Janome sit-down quilting machine to give you extra room to quilt that special quilt? This class is a requirement should you want to give your smaller machine and yourself a break when it comes to quilting a big quilt. Open only to those who have developed basic free motion quilting skills, we will teach you what you need to know to operate this machine (and stitch regulator) and finish your own quilt.

All classes require pre-registration, which can be done in person or over the phone. Space is very limited, so don’t delay. We have fabulous teacher/student ratios!  Can’t make it to a class that you signed up for? Refunds are given with a minimum of 1 week notice. Any other cancellations or no-shows will be issued store credit only. No-shows may affect your ability to register for classes in the future.

Bring your own machine and basic sewing supplies unless class listing says otherwise. Don’t have a machine? One can be provided in most cases for a $5 fee. Class materials list will be provided in store or online as soon as available. Some classes also require a class kit at an additional fee. This makes gathering the materials need easy as the kit provides them for you.

Want something other than what is offered here? More classes will come, but suggestions are welcome and private to semi-private classes can be arranged on a variety of topics. With scheduling difficulties, this can be the best way to get the class you want, especially for busy people (kids too!) so we  can tailor classes to fit you!
