Now enrolling in fall classes!



We are now enrolling in our fall Classes! For those who are just starting out or stuck on an unfinished project, Open Sew is for you. Your teacher will guide you as you finish that unfinished or will help you get started on the project you have in mind.

For those who are collecting the fun Row by Row patterns there will be a group that meets and works specifically on that.
