If you haven't tried one of our series Sew-Alongs yet, you can jump in at any time! They always take place on Mondays at 7pm. Sewing is typically a solo hobby and we're proud to say we've made it fun to do in a virtual group. As an added bonus, you don't have to carry your sewing machine anywhere!

If you'd like to come in and get your supplies in person, please click here to schedule an appointment. We are also happy to help you over the phone or Facetime. Our number at the shop is 773.486.8996 and you can also email us at [email protected] for assistance.

Our Fancy Pants-Along will meet every Monday evening at 7pm via Zoom, March 29th, April 5th & 12th. Participation is free with your purchase of supplies. This is not a sewing lesson and all participants do need to be comfortable with operating their own sewing machine in their home. If you need additional help, please contact us to set up a lesson.
