Adult Sewing

Sewing is a FUN, rewarding way to spend your time. Either for practical reasons like doing your own clothing alterations or for as important a reason like nurturing a little "ME" time. We can help you make clothes you will LOVE to wear and projects you are proud to say you've made.

Our philosophy is that each new project brings new skills and that process is really a PRACTICE.  Much like meditation or learning a sport, sewing as a regular PRACTICE is the key to muscle memory.  Once you have the muscle memory, you can move forward with ease and CONFIDENCE, advancing your skills further and further, wherever you want to take them.  Our mission is for you to develop a SEWING PRACTICE that gives you joy and makes you feel good about yourself.
