Sewing Classes and Clubs in the Kansas City Area


If you want to do fine embroidery, make garments, or do home dec projects, you'll need to master a few basic sewing techniques. In our Let's Sew classes,we'll help you learn the basics. Purchased in 10 hour blocks of time, you work on your own projects in a group setting with instruction and encouragement from our staff. There are several Let's Sew classes scheduled throughout the week; you come when you can, and stay as long as you want, until your 10 hours are used up.
We also offer classes focusing on specific projects or techniques. We have regularly scheduled classes to teach quilt piecing, appliqué, machine quilting and embroidery techniques, on a variety of projects including table runners, quilts, bags, and place mats, just to name a few. Check the calendar or newsletter regularly to stay up to date on the latest class offerings.

My Bernina Mastery

My Bernina Mastery classes are a series of guide classes for new Bernina machine owners. We offer up to 8 hours of class time: four 2 hour classes, or two 4 hour classes. Each class will be limited to eight students, and registration is usually done when you purchase your new machine. If you are not a new machine owner, we can do refresher classes, either one-on-one, or as part of the regularly scheduled class (if space permits).
