Alterations and Repairs Workshop - CPE

Price: $75
Length: 3 hr 
This class is an accredited CPE class designed for instructional professionals

Do you have a sewing question?

  • How do I replace a zipper or button?
  • How do I hem my pants?
  • How do I repair a tear or rip?
  • How do I take the waist in on this?

If you have sewing questions or problems related to clothing, then this 3 hour time slot is your opportunity to get a little help or a second opinion. Bring your sewing projects in and we will give you the skills you need to repair or alter them. This is not your typical lecture class, it is a workshop that is driven by the questions and needs of the participants. This is not an introduction to sewing class, but you do not by any means need to be an advanced seamstress or tailor to participate, all skill levels are welcome.
