Private Lessons

Written by Kamuela

IMG_3183We offer private classes and sessions (groups and individual) call for rates and available time (360) 489-1852

Below are a few of the private classes we offer, what you need may not be listed here, so give us a class and together we can design a lesson that is a perfect fit for you.

Basic machine use for the sewing machine.  . This class is for those who just want to learn to use their machines. They are typically about an hour long and will give you all you need to operate your machine and some basic trouble shooting skills.

Basic machine use for sergers.  We offer this as one-on-one classes. You bring your serger and we help you work the threading and the stitching options. Every serger has its own personality and we try to help you two be friends. Once you are comfortable with way your machine works its uses and usefulness are endless.  BUT you gotta be friends first, so we spend a lot if time threading and working with different fabrics to see how the tension changes and basically getting your machine in your hands. We offer a free latte with this one-on-one class because you will want a reward for your time in.

Basic Pattern reading:  In this class we help you understand the language of patterns, give you some pointers on how to work on so it fits you and some hints we have learned in the years we have been working patterns.  This class runs about 90 minutes.

  • Good afternoon,
    I wanted to ask about the individual sewing lessons that are offered to teach how to use your own sewing machine. I just got one for Christmas and have been trying to look around for beginner sewing classes. I would like to learn my machine first and wanted to know what the cost is for someone to teach me the basics of my machine (Singer 9960). I’m hoping to be able to come in this Friday or Saturday if possible. I’m only available those days of the week right now. Please let me know, thank you!

  • Hi Kamuela, My MS is acting up today and I am hoping I can come in next week, on an open sew day, instead of my regular class time today. Would that be okay? Also, please let me know when the class will be meeting next since next week is Thanksgiving. So sorry to be a bother. Lynn
