SEWING CLASSES AT THE LAB

Series sponsored by the Friends of the North Spokane Library

The sewing series is for adults and teens ages 16 and up. During each class, we will take a short lunch break, so please bring a bag lunch. Registration is required for each sewing class.

Beginner classes include basic sewing machine instruction and are a great start for those new to sewing. Intermediate classes require some sewing experience. If you have taken a beginner class, spent time on the sewing machines during drop-in hours, or have other sewing experience, then these classes will be a great way to try a new sewing project.

You can see a list of all sewing classes on our online event calendar. Register for individual classes using the links below.
