Lessons are built for all human beings age 10+

Lesson plans are written prior to the booking, but they are tailored to your creating needs after a “So & Sew” virtual chat, in spirit of the individual approach.

If you would like to enrol a younger child, please contact us and we can discuss this further.

Every sewing course begins with safety rules, where we explain how to work with tools and machines in the safest way. 

Our sewing machines have a safety feature, that they won’t sew if the presser foot is up and speed of sewing can be adjusted to the experience level of the student.

Also we have a finger guard installed on the machine for kids, that means that the finger can’t get close to the sewing machine needle.

Read more in our blog post about sewing safety rules

Closed-in shoes must be worn at all times, including the warmer months, in case that you drop scissors or other tools on your feet. We recommend wearing older clothes while working with paint, to avoid getting your nice clothes ruined. 

Long hair must be tied back or covered.

All materials and tools needed are included, even a sewing machine. 

If you would like to practice on your sewing machine and use your own materials, you are more than welcome.

Classes are conducted privately in your home or in our studio. 

There is an option to deliver classes online, please contact us for more informations.

You have different ways to book a lesson:

  • Contact the instructor, you can call, send a message or email
  • Book a “So & Sew” 15 min video chat, to make sure that we will meet your creative needs

Yes, of course, we welcome everyone to our classes. Just let us know your unique situation and we will do our best to optimise your experience.

We have a special sewing machine, where you do not have to use your legs for it to operate. All sewing is done with the hands.
