**We think of sewing as a lifestyle. Most garment classes require access to a sewing machine between classes. Classes are designed to introduce and practice skills in the studio with plenty of time for demonstrations, questions, and time for you to work on your garment. Between classes, you will apply what you've learned and prep for the next class. When the class is completed, you will have a finished garment and you'll be ready to go home and do it again!

Skills Learned: 

  • Reading a pattern
  • Tracing and cutting a pattern
  • Hemming
  • Best practices in the sewing room

Supplies Needed:  Fabric must be purchased Before the first day of class. Students receive 15% off all class supplies purchased from Evanston Stitchworks. Please wait to purchase fabric until you receive confirmation that the class will run as scheduled.

  • Please bring pre-washed and pressed fabric to the first class. Email with questions:
