Classes during a pandemic are surely interesting, to say the least. However, we have been having fun at Needle, Ink, and Thread! Students have been amazing following all the restrictions and guidelines that I have to follow to be open and keep everyone safe.

I have been busy teaching a new generation to sew! It seems that this pandemic has reenergized the sewing industry due to mask making and well having a lot of time to try new things. The strangest part is the sewing machine shortage!

I can’t believe how hard it is for people to find and purchase a new machine. All the sites seem to be sold out as well as the dealer sites! Great time to sell a machine if you are not planning on using it.


I wanted to share some photos of classes from August. My fantastic students have been creating the most amazing projects, and I have to brag on them a bit. Seriously, some are brand new to sewing, and man, can they pull a straight line! I plan on posting monthly with a gallery of photos from classes.

I want everyone to see how easy it is to sew if you invest a little time and energy! Practice makes better is what I always say.

The classes have been in full force with sewing and students, covid19 has renewed the way people look at those that sew, as a skill and something worthwhile. It seems like the pandemic has put sewing under the lens of a useful skill that people should be taught (even if just the basics) so they can be self-sufficient!

Student Projects


  1. There is a basics class and some other workshops listed 🙂

  2. Hi! I am 🙂 right now I have a 4 week (4 classes once a week) on the calendar for Saturdays (215.00) as well as private lessons 2 hours – $60 per class. SUMMER 2020 – Private Sewing Lessons – You pick the date and time!

    With private lessons you choose what you want to learn in the lesson, I also have a 20.00 dis out if you book 4 classes at one time. Use code 4classes.

    Let me know if I can help with anything else!

  3. I have a 15-year-old son who was interested in learning how to sew.
    Are you still doing sewing lessons? What is the cost? And what do I need to do?
    Thank you
