Sew It! Workshop
the POP UP sewing studio
Virtual Hand-Sewing Workshops
For Fall and Winter 2020, I'm super thrilled to offer exciting virtual workshops in two formats: LIVE, interactive Zoom lessons or -Demand Pre-recorded Project Series! 

LIVE Zoom workshops are scheduled for the dates listed below.  Tweens and teens aged 9 - 16 will learn to stitch amazing and useful projects with just a needle, thread and simple materials and supplies.  Students joining these workshops will receive a Future Designer Project Hand Sewing Kit with special fabric and tools to complete the week's projects. 

The On-Demand Pre-recorded Workshops are perfect for students juggling crowded, busy schedules or who prefer independent pacing.  Each series includes 3 - 4 sessions with sew-along videos that produce over 3 hours of instruction.  Each session has natural pause 'stop and stitch' points that allow the student to complete the project together with me.  Complete, beautifully illustrated instructions and patterns are available by immediate download upon purchase - no waiting!
Here are a few examples of the uber-cool projects we will sew by hand. 
NO SEWING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!

How the Live Virtual Hand Sewing Workshop Works

Live Online Class
In our 90-minute class, we will cut, mark and sew together.  Totally interactive, students may ask questions and engage directly with the instructor.  Students receive written, illustrated instructions as needed.  The Instructions will be provided electronically.

Future Designer Kit
Upon registration, a Future Designer Kit will be prepared and mailed to each student.  The Kit is specific to the Weekly Theme that the student has signed up for including appropriate fabrics and notions along with all of the tools and supplies needed to complete the projects.  It is, however, totally okay to take the classes if the Kit has not yet arrived in which case, the student can finish the projects at their leisure.

Participation
Students should have an adult present to assist as needed, particularly with cutting fabric.  Siblings are welcome to take the class together as long as all siblings are individually registered.  From Day 1, students will be using needles, pins, scissors and other sharp tools.  Sew It! Workshop assumes no responsibility for injury resulting from the use of these tools.  Missed classes will not be made up, however, if there is room in a later class on the same theme, we will try to make accommodation where possible.  There are no refunds for missed classes.



On-Demand Pre-recorded Sew-Along Individual Project Videos - Available beginning September 10, 2020

Simply select the On-Demand Project Workshop Series that you'd like to stitch.  Upon purchase, you will receive a link to 3 - 4 video that will allow the student to sew the project along with me via natural, 'stop and stitch' points.  The lesson is designed to ensure successful sewing and is filled with tips applicable to the specific project and to other sewing activities. Students may review videos as often as they like.  Video access does not expire.  Students will receive beautifully illustrated instructions/patterns for each project.
