The process is very simple, you get to choose the skill you want to learn, find a private teacher available when you are and book. We recommend staying consistent with the same teacher until you reach your goals. Once you leave the beginner phase, check out our webinars!

Do I need a sewing machine?

How long do the beginners' curriculums take to complete?

How do the classes operate?
Our 1-on-1 classes are led by each teacher. The first 5-10 in your first class are spent developing a plan of action to help you achieve your specific goals. Each student is different and the great thing about our format is that we adapt to your individual needs. If you need one lesson to learn a specific skill, we will help you. Likewise, if you are a complete beginner and need a curriculum to learn the most basic skills, we have a plan for you as well. We achieve as much as possible during class and will give you tasks to complete on your own to continue developing your skills. The projects will increase in difficulty at your pace and we make sure you leave class with a thorough understanding of how to create them.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
As a courtesy to your teacher we require that you reschedule at least 1 day in advance. Webinars can not be rescheduled by students and everyone who enrolls will have access to the recording for 60 days after the live session.
What is your refund policy?
We do not offer refunds for canceled classes. You may reschedule your class at least 24 hours in advance if needed.
Do you offer financial assistance?
Yes, we offer financial assistance on a rolling basis depending on the funds available to our organization. To apply for financial assistance fill out the form here.
