Sewing classes and workshops
designed with the beginner in mind.
With a lack of funding, our schools have dropped many of the Art programs that were once available. Sew O'side is here to pick up some of that burden! We focus on the functions of sewing, teaching skills and confidence so that students can learn through simple, step-by-step instructions. Our goal is that each student can thrive on their own and work their way through a pattern (or design their own).
Evening and Daytime Classes are available to both children and adults in a fun, but safe setting. All machines are on site, we just need YOU!
Different Options for all levels and experiences!
Many options are available for Children and Adults. Ages 6-7 can be accommodated in a Semi-Private class (please message to schedule). Ages 8 and up can register for all classes.
Private Lessons &
Skill based learning.
Private and Semi-Private lessons are focused on teaching the skills needed and building the confidence to be able to work on your own. These classes are great for the newbies and seasoned crafters as they are tailored to your specific needs and goals.
Great for those who've had that machine sitting in the closet for years!
Project specific learning.
This 2 hour class is focused around completing a small project regardless of your sewing experience. You will follow the steps needed to complete your project from start to finish. Samples of projects: Pillowcase, Zipper Clutch, Aprons and more! Ask about our group rates as well!
Perfect for a girl's night out!
Dive in Learning!
Four days in a row of consistent instruction to really dive into the world of sewing! Projects vary depending on the overall skill level of each student. Space is limited for each week. Great for adults and kids who are on break from school, home school or charter!
Winter Camp info will be released on Nov 20th!
