CLASS SCHEDULE



2017

Weekly “Sit and Sew” Returns

Sit & Sew will be every Monday.  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.

 

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.
