Tailor Night w Lauren Taylor

Open Sewing Night w Lauren Taylor
45.00

Select Thursdays, 6-9pm

Bring your fave pattern and join us for an open sewing night! This class is a great segway between a group class and a private lesson - you get to pick the project/pattern that YOU want to work on, and know that there is a knowledgable instructor on hand to help you whenever you get stuck. This class is perfect for all levels - from the super beginner to the intermediate/advanced who is ready to step up their game! Our instructor Lauren Taylor has made practically all garments - from jeans, to silk dresses, even lingerie - and can help you with whatever questions you may have! This open class is a fun way to make your sewing a little more social, while also learning the techniques and projects that interest you the most!

Required Materials (available in our shop):

  • Whatever you want to work on! Make sure to bring your pattern, fabric, and necessary notions.

Class includes:

  • 3 hours of instruction
  • Use of our cutting, marking, and measuring tools
  • Use of our Janome sewing machines & thread - including our sergers and coverstitch machines!
  • Snacks & drinks
  • 15% off all in store purchases before, during and after on class day (yes, we will have the registers open during class!)

Choose your preferred date by selecting the option in the drop-down menu. For any questions, you can email lauren@craft-south.com or call the shop @615-928-8766.
