In this class, we will learn how to use a sewing machine by making a square pillow with nine-patch design! Instructor Andrea Verley will teach you how to thread the machine and bobbin, stitch and backstitch. This is a great class for beginners and for people who wonder if they could pull that machine out of the closet and make it sing again.

The pillow we’ll create is 12-inches wide and tall and will give us an opportunity to learn to sew a quarter inch seam, match fabric intersections and turn fabric while sewing. Mature children with some machine sewing experience are welcome (with adult present).

You will leave the class with basic sewing machine knowledge and a finished, stuffed pillow!

We will provide you with a sanitized sewing machine and fiber fill.  When we finalize your reservation, we’ll find out if you would like us to supply fabric (no additional charge). If you would like to bring your own fabric, you’ll need to bring the following in 100% cotton fabric:

(1) 12-1/2” square of fabric (for back of pillow)
(2) 6-1/2” squares of fabric in one color or pattern
(2) 6-1/2” squares of fabric in a second color or pattern
Thread to match or contrast with your fabric – your choice – have fun!

If you bring uncut fabric, we have sanitized fabric scissors and cutting rulers you can use to cut your fabric to size.  We’ll supply sanitized scissors for cutting your thread.

COVID Safety Precautions for this Class

We are easily able to provide lots of distancing between students for this class, are sanitizing the space between guests, and have a medical grade HEPA air filtration machine in place. For the near term, we are requesting all our guests wear masks during classes. We’ll take a few breaks so you can enjoy some mask-free time on our patio. We don’t know the personal circumstances of all our friends – some may have people at home they need to be mindful of – so we’re choosing to be helpful to all – especially our community’s first responders and medical workers. We have super lightweight, disposable masks you are welcome to use. If you are medically unable to wear a mask, let us know and we will work with and welcome you!

Complete the form below to request this Private Class for a minimum of two people. If it’s just you, we’re happy to receive an Open Class Request to kick off a class others can join with you.
