Private or semi-private sewing lessons are $20/hour with a two-hour minimum, so $40 total for two hours of one-on-one (or one-on-two) lesson time. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (641) 782-8874 and we can schedule a time that will fit your needs
Please download your registration form here. Please contact me to schedule your lesson, then print, fill out and send in the registration form or bring it with you to your first lesson. Please give me 48 hours’ notice if you need to reschedule your private or semi-private session.
In addition to the fabrics and notions for the project youʼd like to make (please check with me ahead of time so we can discuss your goals and Iʼll make suggestions on patterns), please bring the following supplies:
Basic Sewing Supplies (Also available for purchase)
Thread. Use GOOD thread. We recommend Mettler, which we carry in store.
Pins (Ball-headed pins of 1 1/4- 1 1/2” long, in a box, are best)
Pincushion or magnetic pin holder
Fabric marking tools - water soluble pen or chalk pencil in white and light blue
Small snips for cutting threads
If youʼre learning how to use your sewing machine, please bring 1/2 yard of scrap
fabric so we can practice stitches.
If youʼre bringing your own sewing machine:
Please make sure itʼs in good working order. If itʼs been sitting for awhile or is a hand- me-down and you donʼt know its history, please test it out. Itʼs a good idea to have machines serviced annually. We service machines at Quilts & Other Notions! Their price is currently set at $79+tax for a tune-up/cleaning.
Bring all accessories like sewing machine feet, cords, the foot pedal, AND your ownerʼs manual. If you donʼt have a manual, google your machineʼs make and model and download a free one.
Don't forget your bobbins! An extra bobbin or two for your machine would be helpful. All styles of machines use different bobbins!
