Thursday - Sunday Daily Sewing Retreat Blocks - Advanced Beginner and Up
These blocks are designed so a more in depth project or a number of projects can be picked and worked on in continuous sessions.
Our open sessions are so popular at the studio, and for good reason, each student gets to pick a garment that they want to make and wear. It can be anything that you'd like just as long as it is at your experience level, just confirm your choice before your first class.
You can also pick to make something in these sessions from any of the classes we already offer and we will have the pattern ready on your first day!
Not sure what to pick, or how long it will take - Just send us an email and we will let you know!

Each session starts on a Thursday and runs through Sunday and is available on one weekend per month unless noted below.

What level should I be sewing at to take this class?
This class is an advanced beginner and up class.
How many students are there per class?
I like to teach a maximum of 5 Students.
How much 1-1 time will I get?
Each students will get as much time - both as a group and individually - as they need in order to construct their garment. The aim is for each student to complete their garment having fully understood each step, so they can build off their new skillset for future individual projects.
Can I bring my own sewing machine and/or notions?
Yes! If you have a sewing machine you love to use, you are welcome to bring it. If you have a machine that you do not use often and need help with, then please plan on using the studio machines.
Scissors, pins, threads, etc are all supplied but if you have your own favorites, then of course, bring those! We just ask that you label them and take full responsibility for your items while in class.
Will I finish my garment in class?
We try to make sure all projects can be completed in the time allotted unless otherwise stated when booking.
Some of the ongoing classes and workshops may have the potential for some voluntary homework or the option for extra learning but it cannot be guaranteed that any garment, item, or project will be completed in its entirety during the physical time spent in the studio.
What refreshments and snacks will be available?
Local treats, king cakes, bagels for breakfast, coffee and tea throughout the day... and a BYOB if you feel like celebrating at the end of a fun class. There is a small fridge, a Keurig, water cooler, microwave, and toaster in the studio and these can be used throughout the day.
As we are in the Quarter, there are lots of food options as well as delivery, so we will make a list of those available to you before lunchtime rolls around.
You are also welcome to bring snacks and lunch to eat at the studio if you prefer.
