Coming in January

With the new year comes new opportunities! Start the year off right with everything you need to accomplish your sewing goals.

If your new year’s resolution is to finally learn to sew, get started with the beginner sewing classes and workshops available in January, or dive into the Intro to Sewing Course.

If you already sew, get your machine serviced and ready for all of the projects you’ll tackle this year.

Last year was good, and we’re hoping 2018 will be even better. Check out a few year-end projects below, and stay tuned for more custom sewing projects we’re working on now.

Machine Service

New days and times to schedule machine service appointments.  Saturdays are still available, plus more weekday times in the morning, afternoon, and evening, at 4 locations around Austin, so there are plenty of options to get your machine looked at. All brands of new and vintage domestic sewing machines and sergers.

Schedule Appointment Schedule Appointment

Many times the problem you’re experiencing can be resolved during the diagnostic. If the machine does need more time to fix, or if it needs a full-service cleaning, most machines are returned within 2 weeks.

Don’t forget, you can also give a machine service gift certificate to your friends and family who sew. And for those of you who sew all the time, check out the discount service packages when you need more frequent servicing.

Fun & Easy Sewing Workshops

These have been very popular and are back for the new year. These are great for anyone who doesn’t know how to sew and wants to get a taste for sewing with fun, easy-to-make projects. ALL MATERIALS and MACHINES ARE PROVIDED!
