Sewing Lab

Everything sewing is right at Sewing Lab!
Bring your project whether it is a garment, home textile, or mending project. I will guide you to get it finished and looking fantastic! Please check out the lookbook to see the wide variety of projects that have passed through the doors of Sewing Lab!
Sewing Lab is a 4-week session with a 2.5-hour class per week. There are usually two daytime Sewing Labs and two evening Sewing Labs during each session. As a bonus to students, I allow one free-of-charge make up class per session. (should there be available space in another weekly sewing lab, and it almost always is).
Each week I demonstrate a sewing technique. The demonstration is usually 15 minutes long and cover basic sewing techniques. 

If you are brand new to sewing,
I highly recommend that you take a private class initially, to acquaint yourself with your machine and learn the very basics of machine sewing. I offer an introduction package of a two-hour private class + one Sewing Lab four-week session for $345. There is a library of patterns of simple beginner projects available for free in the classroom. Some sewing supplies are available for purchase at the studio. 

All classes are taught at
64 Louise Street in San Rafael

Pants. Shirts. Skirts
Garment Construction Special Workshops.
These workshops are great opportunities to sew and fit a garment made from a woven fabrics (with no or little stretch) to your own personal measurements and translate the changes to your pattern for future use. Choose a pattern that is realistic for your skill level, but don’t forget to challenge yourself a bit too! To benefit from class content, you need to have advanced beginner sewing skills.
