On Thursday nights from 6 to 9pm, Sarah, the shop's owner, holds sewing classes that are appropriate for beginners (and those who haven't sewn in awhile, ahem, ahem). In addition to sewing lessons, Sarah offers a great selection of fabrics and pattern books. If you don't have fabric, you can easily purchase some before class - just as I did.
Check out Grey's Facebook page for contact information and the class schedule.
- Be fearless and have fun! It's ok to make mistakes. Focus on learning as much as you can and enjoy what you make.
- Practice. Grey's offers open sewing hours during the week. Stop in and practice your stitches! Be sure to contact the shop for details.
- Feel like driving? Go ahead. Parking is free at SOWA.
