I don’t teach many scheduled sewing classes, but for October I’ve added a few more beginner-friendly classes. You don’t need any sewing experience to participate, plus sewing machines are available and most materials are provided.
Join us all month long for a variety of sewing activities. Sign up for new beginner-friendly sewing classes where you can learn to make a wide range of different accessories, or upcycle an old t-shirt into a pillow or pair of shorts.
I’ll also be on-site at the downtown library to refashion and alter clothes on the spot. This is a great way to get more life out of a garment you may no longer wear, or find something new.
Get a quick taste of sewing and have fun making something for yourself.
No sewing machine, materials, or experience required – just show up and leave with something cool! If you’re curious about sewing or just want to have a good time making something for yourself, this is the class for you. These workshops have been very popular and often sell out, so don’t wait too long to sign up.

Clothing Swap & Stitch/Fix/Hack Event
Hosted by Reduce Reuse Remake, I’ll be available to re-style and tailor clothes that you bring or find at the event.
This is a great opportunity to swap clothes you don’t wear anymore with something different, or have it re-styled into something new. There will be piles of textiles, patches, grommets, buttons, and lots more that you use to remake your garments or clothes you find at the event.

T-Shirt Upcycle to Pillow Cover or Shorts
Remake a t-shirt into a custom throw pillow cover or a pair of lounge shorts.
Do you have a bunch of old t-shirts stuffed in drawers or boxes just taking up space that you don’t want to get rid of? In this workshop, you’ll learn how to turn a t-shirt into a throw pillow cover or a pair of lounge shorts. You’ll come away with the experience to make a t-shirt into a cool new piece rather than tossing that shirt in the trash.

Beginner Basics Sewing Class
A great introduction to basic sewing techniques and using a sewing machine.
Whether you’ve never sewn before or it’s been a long time since you last touched your sewing machine, this class will provide you with what you need to jump into sewing. We will go over aspects of your machine and its functionality, and then make a drawstring bag. All materials are provided, and sewing machines are available too if you don’t have your own.
