Fall 2020

Afterschool & Weekend Sewing Classes

COVID-19 Update: We plan to run our afterschool program this Fall 2020 with updated safety policies & procedures, which are subject to change as we learn about guidelines set forth by the School District and the City of Philadelphia for operation during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working to finalize our schedule and hope to have registration open by mid-July. Meanwhile we will continue to seek more information about potential changes to afterschool pick-up protocol and indoor group activities for children. Please check back on our website, or contact us if you would like to be notified when the schedule is live.

Thank you for your patience as we work to develop the best way to keep our community of students & staff safe.

Choose your child's age group:


Fall 2020

Our classes for younger children explore the wonders of needle and thread with fun projects that combine hand sewing and machine sewing. Students will make stuffies, pillows, bags, embroidery & more!

8-11 YEARS

Fall 2020

This group will learn to thread & operate a sewing machine with complete independence, while learning more advanced skills such as how to insert zippers, topstitch, embroider and sew curves.

12-15 YEARS

Fall 2020

Older students will pursue garment and accessory making in a professional studio environment. Your child will execute fashion projects from shopping for fabric to stitching the final hem.

Teen class is held on Saturdays at the Bella Vista studio only.
