Due to current status with COVID-19 we can no longer provide all of the basic sewing kit for use during our classes and workshops. We will still provide the sewing machines and pressing areas but you will need to bring your own basic hand tools.

If you do not have these essentials, we have put together sewing kits with all of these items. Available in-store and online, in both adult and child versions.
