  1. Hello Ladies

    I am very interested in learning to sew. I am kind of a clumsy when it comes to sewing. I have tried in the past. Can you please tell me what class I should start off with, can you also suggest a sewing machine to buy. Thank you


    1. Hi, Gretchen,
      Sorry I didn’t catch this earlier! You are probably making your own clothes by now 🙂
      Anyway, we have some beginner sewing classes underway and you could jump in if you want on Wednesday evenings. They’ll continue in July. AS for buying a machine we advise buying from a dealer as they will stand behind the machines, give you instruction in basic operation and most will allow trade ups if you decide you love sewing and want more of a machine than you initially purchase.
      Hope that helps.
