Hey, you CAN sew.  Once you've made your first successful item on the sewing machine, you'll be ready to tackle it all.  In this workshop, you'll learn to sew a simple circle skirt that will be your fall and chilly weather go-to.  

Utilizing a circle skirt pattern, a little math, a 2.5" - 3" piece of elastic, a fabulously patterned piece of material, one of our in-store Brother sewing machines, and one hour's time, you'll walk away with a super fun circle skirt, all while asking yourself why you haven't made 50 of these before.  

While simple sewing knowledge is helpful in this class, beginners and advanced sewers are welcome.  Patterns and step-by-step guides will be on-hand, and your instructor will be there to walk you through individual steps if you need advanced guidance.  Because this is not an Intro to the Sewing Machine class, each attendee must know how to spool a bobbin and properly thread a machine.  


  • All attendees must bring 2-3 yards of fabric for their skirt (make it 4 yards if you plan to have it knee length or lower, and plan to piecemeal the skirt, versus having a full circle. We strongly recommend planning on creating a skirt knee length or shorter if it is your first time making a circle skirt).  If you are bringing Ankara fabric, you will have to piece the skirt together, versus learning the true circle process. To ensure you learn this process, be sure to bring a wider fabric (your fabric store can help you with this). 

  • If you are a novice sewer, please be sure to bring cotton, broadcloth, quilting cotton, or some other form of woven fabric to ensure success in the workshop (no satins, silks, or rayons for a beginner workshop, please). 

  • To ensure the that you have enough yardage to meet your length needs for your skirt, be sure to select fabric that is AT LEAST 55" in width (the fabric store will guide you to fabrics that have wider cuts). All other materials are provided in the cost of the workshop.
