make*do*mend: Private Sewing Lessons

$ 50.00

Want to learn to sew or a new technique and want to have more individual instruction tailored to you and your project? We are now offering limited sewing lessons for most all ranges of sewing, including beginner, general, apparel and quilting. All lessons take place at the make*do*mend sewing studio at Drygoods Design and are by the hour, with one hour minimum required. After the first two hours, we are able to price by thirty-minute increments.

Semi-private lessons can also be available for $40 per person per hour. We suggest no more than three people so that instruction can be as tailored as possible to your project and skill level.

Experience Level: All levels welcome, with a focus on new to sewing and new techniques

Materials Needed: We provide the machines and a robust sewing kit for all lessons and classes. Additional supplies, thread and fabric are project-based and an additional cost. Supplies and fabric purchased at Drygoods Design receive 15% off if purchased for private lesson projects.

Available times vary and are scheduled on a first-come, first serve basis.
