Makit Sew: Private Lessons & MORE!
Have you ever wanted to learn more about sewing, but something got in the way? Maybe you couldn't make the class time work with your schedule, maybe you are a beginner and need a more 1 on 1 lesson style, or maybe you need extra help with a more advanced project. There are all kinds of reasons you might want a private lesson with us.
Classes may include use of the studios Bernina sewing machines, private instructional time, and reference guides and/or patterns to take home. All classes include fabric. For the upcycled classes, you are encouraged to bring in some old t-shirts.
This is the place to schedule those lessons. We offer many options for private lessons and they will continue to grow and change as we are always adding more to our list. They will range in price and length depending on the craft we are working on.
Currently Offering These Classes:
