Learn Sewing With Us!
**Due to Covid 19 related restrictions Classes are postponed.**
There are three ways to learn sewing with us:
- Private Sewing Lessons
- Flourish Threads' Snip and Sew Party
- Seasonal Sewing Course
Private Sewing Lessons
Want to focus on specific skills? Or do you have a garment that you'd like help creating? You can receive one-on-one guidance with our private sewing lessons. Classes will resume after all Covid 19 related restrictions are lifted.
Cost per session is $35 for up to 2 hours.
These can be scheduled at a time convenient for you. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a sessions.
Snip And Sew Party
At this event, everything you need is Provided: A sewing machine (information below) materials, food, refreshment and fun! No experience required-- Just bring yourself, and leave with a smile, full tummy, and a beautiful garment that YOU created! These are held on a Saturday from 2PM-6PM.
The total cost for the party is $45. Each party requires that you send an email to email@example.com to reserve your spot. An invoice will be sent and must be paid for reservation.
We held our very first Snip and Sew Party in March 2015! See pictures from the event here.
Since then, we've held a few more Snip and Sews and each one has been a success! Each Class features a different garment to be made. Some were so popular, we may have to hold another one making the same garment, so more people can get a chance to create.
Seasonal Sewing Course
The lessons are held for six to seven weeks depending on the plan you choose.
Each session is $35 per person, and all materials and machinery will be supplied. Classes are for males and females age 16 & up. We teach on a variety of machines including:
Singer 4423 Heavy Duty (Basic machine)
Husqvarna H Class 100Q (Combination)
Husqvarna Sapphire 3500 (Computerized machine)
We also have sergers and embroidery machines.
**If you own a sewing machine that would prefer to use, please feel free to bring it with you!
Here is the subject matter for each lesson:
**Dates for subsequent lessons are subject to change with due notice.
Lesson #1 - Sewing Basics & Terms
Here is where you learn the machine-- the different parts, the settings and their purposes, and the terms and skills you will use on just about any garment. Sew your first seam with one-on-one guidance from our instructors! We will also set expectations for the course.
Lesson #2 - Using & Reading Patterns
Time to learn how to use those commercial bought patterns! You will learn how to select, read, iron and cut a pattern. We will also demonstrate how to cut out the fashion fabric according to the directions.
Lesson #3 - Sew Your Garment!
That's right! After only 2 classes, you are ready to make your garment! We will work through the pattern step by step until the garment is finished. The garment will change for each course depending on the season and particpants.
Lesson #4 - Design & Create Your Own Pattern
Design and sketch a garment that you want to make, and we will help you create the pattern for it. We will demonstrate how to use both paper and fabric to create your pattern. Then you can make your design whenever your heart desires!
Lesson #5 - Sewing Your Design
Now you will create the garment that you designed from last session, using the pattern you made. This is all YOU (we'll be there to guide you, of course). We will also briefly go over some tips for shopping at the fabric stores when you're ready to venture out and and do it all from scratch.
Lesson #6 - Sewing Your Design 2
More time to help you complete your design. For those who may have finished, we have some helpful skills and practice exercises that can be done during the alloted time. All-in-all, it's another opportunity to use those skills you learned!
Lesson #7 - Wildcard Lesson
Our final lesson! Based on the goals that you set in Lesson 1, we will work through some exercises to help boost your confidence as a fellow seamer!
***Note all classes, lesson and Parties will resume after Covid 19 restrictions are lifted.***
