CLASS PRICE INCLUDES THE COST OF THE PATTERN WHICH CAN BE PICKED UP ANY TIME AFTER PAYING FOR THE COUSE.
DRESS MUST BE CUT OUT PRIOR TO THE START OF THE CLASS. If you have not cut from a pattern before, we recommend that you take one of our Sewing 101 classes where we can show how!
Sewing machines can be rented for $5 for the course. It is recommended that you bring a machine if you own one so that you may learn to sew on the machine that you'll be using the most.
