These hours may be scheduled prior to the regular opening of the store, or at the end of the day. Private lessons are only offered on an 'In-store" basis.

Join us for this year's NJ Teacher's Convention in-service days mini-camps -- Thursday, November 4th and Friday, November 5th.

When your student is home/off from school during the Teachers Convention days, make the most of your -- and their -- time by letting them sew their own stylish and on-trend projects. Each year, we offer two days of workshops -- when the teachers are in convention. This year's camp will feature a choice of projects. You can choose for them to come one day or both.

Projects are still being determined, but we encourage you to sign up for this often sold out class.

Because these two items are expected to not be accomplished together in a one-day workshop, you will need to sign up for both mini-camp days to make both projects. Both mini-camp days will include a pizza lunch.

Skills learned in these mini-camps include, hemming and gathering, adding a button closure, and more.

Best of all, you'll amaze your friends and family when you tell them you made it yourself.

Mini-Camp days will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day -- Thursday and Friday. Both days will include a choice of fabric and all sewing supplies. Call us for more information for these great mini-camps. Registration is limited! While these projects are intended to be done in-person, either item could be done as a virtual workshop. If you are interested in a virtual workshop, please call us.

To sign up for both days you will need to add the option "Mini-Camp Day 1" to your cart and then select this item again and choose the option "Mini-Camp Day 2" and add it to your cart. Sign up for both days or more than one sewing and we'll apply a credit when you check out.

Make it. Wear it. Look your best!
