Bernina Feet Retreat
Did you get your first Bernina for Christmas, or perhaps you have had a Bernina for a while now, but are puzzled by the 90 some feet Bernina has to offer. Let me take the mystery away and show you pointers on how easy it is to use some of the feet Bernina has available. We will work with the narrow hemmer, gathering and ruffle foot. Learn how easy it is to make pintucks, piping (both regular and mini) for pillows, or edges of collars, etc. All Bernina feet have been designed to help give you professional results when sewing. Come learn to make the most out of your investment.

More Scraps Quilt
Bring ALL your scraps and we will make some blocks and explore design choices for this quilt. I make this quilt to commemorate all the quilts I make by using the scraps from each quilt to make blocks for this one. It’s fun to look at it and say, “Oh! I remember that quilt!” especially if I’ve given the quilt away. We will work on accurate piecing for those who need that, and will just zip along making blocks for those who already piece tiny blocks accurately. Come join us for a day of fun!

Weekly “Sit and Sew”
Sit & Sew will be every Monday from 10:00-3:30. Leave the housework at home, bring out those projects that need finishing and come on over for some "sewing camaraderie". There will always be someone to help you if you get to one of those spots that you just can't figure out. I know I can accomplish more if I am sewing away from home without the ringing phone and the laundry that always needs to be done.
Mondays from 10 - 3:30
Did you know Studio Stitch rents machines?
If you don't have a sewing machine, don't want to haul your machine to class, are thinking about purchasing a new machine, want to embroider something, or are just learning to sew, stop by and talk to us about our "in store" machine rental program.

STUDIO STITCH’S WEATHER POLICY
Our weather policy for classes is to follow the Guilford County School System’s schedule for closings and delays. If Guilford County Schools are closed, our classes for that day are canceled, but the store may or may not be open according to the actual road conditions as the day progresses – please call before you come in if schools are closed. If there is a 2 hour delay for schools we will be on our regular schedule and classes will be held.
All classes at Studio Stitch require registration prior to the day of class. Please call, e-mail, or register in person with a staff member. All class fees should be paid in full upon registration. Any class supply lists and/or special instructions should be supplied upon registration. Please make sure you pick them up when you register. Classroom machines are available upon request, a $5.00/day fee will be added to the cost of Class. Student should be prepared to provide their own thread. Please contact us if you are unsure what type of thread is required for your class.
Studio Stitch reserves the right to cancel any class (including mastery classes) if the minimum enrollment is not met. Our rule of thumb is to make the final call (based on enrollment) one week prior to the start date of class. We will do our best to let each of our students know if a class has been canceled, but ultimately it is the customer’s responsibility to check with Studio Stitch to confirm the class has made. If a class is canceled by Studio Stitch and/or teacher due to low enrollment student will get full refund or store credit of class fee. If a class is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances including illness, weather, etc we will do our best to reschedule at a later date. If a student should need to cancel or drop out of a class they will get full refund if they let Studio Stitch know at least one week prior to class start date. There is no refund if student cancels within the week before class.
