Private & Semi-Private Lessons

Teaching the skills you need to work on your own.

It all starts with a machine and fabric! We use a basic home sewing machine to teach in the studio - use of the studio machines are included in all classes and workshops. Most of the projects to start will be using 100% woven cotton, as it is the easiest to navigate as a beginner. 

For decades, paper and tissue patterns were the norm, however, the availability of PDF patterns has changed the sewing world significantly! In class, we will focus on the flexibility of PDF patterns and how best to use them. 

At Sew Bestie, we understand how important it is to create lasting self confidence with your new found skills. Our services are available and customized to suit all needs. We ensure that all of our students’ requests are met through personalized instruction and guidance through every step of the way.

Sewing Camp

Remember when "learning to swim" was just dad throwing you in the pool? 

The Sew Bestie Camp is a similar approach, without the whole "feeling like you're like drowning" bit. From start to finish, each day of camp, we teach you about the machines, patterns and fabric and how to best use them together. We practice the basics before diving feet first into a project so that each student can accomplish each step with confidence. 

Camps are a great way to gauge your child's interest in sewing before emptying your wallet on a machine that will end up just sitting in the closet! On the flip side, if you are one of those that still has a "never opened" machine stored away, this is a great starting point! 

At Sew Bestie, we understand how important it is to create lasting self confidence with your new found skills. Our services are available and customized to suit all needs. We ensure that all of our students’ requests are met through personalized instruction and guidance every step of the way.
