Welcome Back to in-person classes!

Our NEW classroom space is ready to go! 

We're transitioning back to In-Store classes. Our current schedule - with both Online and In-Store classes - runs through the end of June.
Soon we'll be adding even more for July and August!

With so much more space, individual desks for each student, new comfy chairs, central cutting tables, two ironing stations, and a private change area for fittings, our classroom is better than ever!

Love Zoom classes? Don't worry!
We still plan to offer you plenty of options for online learning.

New stuff this week! 

Our friend Becky came by with a fresh supply of beautiful vintage buttons!

Becky has included a few 12-button cards this time! Perfect for a longer shirt, or a shirtdress!

New silk noil in fresh, yummy colors. It's an easy way to wear silk in the summer, feel great, and look great.

Printed knits from Stof Fabrics, and a few solids, too. Super-soft cotton knits just perfect for quick, comfy projects!

Here's the classes coming up - online AND in-store options!

Drape Your Perfect Tank Online
last chance - starts today!

Say goodbye to gaping armholes and sloppy fit. We’re going to sew the perfect woven tank top for summer. Learn to drape a simple custom pattern on your dress form or your own body - it’s easier than you think! Add French seams and a clean bias binding, and you’ll want to make a whole closet full.

Post Sergery: A Knit Tee for Me!

You made a no-stress tee for a child in Basic Sergery. Now it’s time to tackle a tee that you will actually wear! We’ll supply the tee pattern from Itch to Stitch; it has a variety of necklines and silhouettes to keep you serging all summer long. We’ll cover techniques for measuring your body to choose a pattern size, fit issues, neckband application, hems, plus learn hands-on how to order and work with a large format printing of a PDF pattern.

You don’t have to be a Basic & Beyond graduate but you do need to know how to get a 4 thread stitch on your serger :)

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Instructor: Material Girls Debbie & Kristin

Fee: $55

Wed 10:00 - 12:00 June 2 & 9
