Free Serger Talk this Saturday and more

It's time for our Free Monthly Online Sewing Talk! We have had such a great response to these talks for the past few months and we're excited to keep them going. For us, it's been a wonderful way to connect with sewists in the community, and for participants, it's a no-fuss way to learn something new and get a sample of what we offer in our classes.

May's topic: Do I need a serger?

Coverstitch? Overlock? Flatlock? Rolled hem? What will a serger do that my sewing machine isn’t already doing? What do I need to know before I go shopping? This and more from the teachers of Basic Sergery & Beyond, the Material Girls.

Saturday 10:30 May 15 


This talk is free, but space is limited. Call us to reserve your spot. 651.698.9690

This week has been all about PRINTS! At Treadle, we are always striving to being you a diverse array of fashion fabrics, soft knits, quilting cottons, and more - a little something for everybody and every project. We've seen a lot of fantastic new cotton prints come in this week, and they're just too good to keep for quilting only.

We always carry the finest quality quilting cotton we can find, so we can offer you not only exquisite printed designs, but also a softer, more drapey cotton that you'll be happy to make garments out of. Summer dresses, skirts, blouses, and even pajamas are comfy and stylish in these cotton prints.

Classes coming up!
So many great opportunities coming in the next week!

Best Bust Fit Online

Focus on fitting the bust! The majority of women need to make bust adjustments to commercial patterns. Plenty of fit issues stem from poor bust fit: buttons pulling, wrinkles and drag lines around the bust, pointy darts, uneven hemlines, baggy backs, too much fabric in the upper chest, or gaping armholes. In this lecture and discussion class, we'll show you how to make a Full Bust Adjustment or Small Bust Adjustment, how to custom-shape darts, how to rotate your dart intake, and more. Be ready to ask questions and take notes!
