Our class sizes are small, ranging from 5, for digital or dressmaking classes with multiple sessions, up to 10 people for single session craft workshops. This means more personal coaching time with your trainer – essential in any hands-on creative classes!
Yes, we laud individual creativity & spontaneity! Book us for our private workshops, We can help you realize and complete your digital concepts, fashion projects or design ideas that may require sewing skills. The process starts with an consultation at our studio in Chinatown about your idea – this helps us both to set realistic targets for the project – budget friendly for you, and work savvy for us!. Small group lessons also available.
In the event that you miss a class with multiple sections, we offer one free replacement class within the duration of your class dates. Additional studio time is $10/hrs for existing students. For single workshops, you may make up the class by attending the same class of another section, provided that the class is not full (For example, Sewing 101 usually has a Monday AND a Saturday section–if you miss Monday, you can come to Saturday’s class). Otherwise, and in the event that a student misses a class with only one section, a make-up class can be scheduled at the rate of $20/hr.
Our studio is outfitted with sewing machines, a 3-thread & a 4-thread overlock for use during class and studio time. If you prefer to work on your own machine, do remember to bring your dedicated footers and attachments along!
