Class Notes

If you are interested in taking a class and are unable to attend, just find a friend or a group of friends and LSQW will schedule a time with the teacher so you may take the class. Please purchase all materials for your class ahead of time.  Due to copyright issues no sharing of patterns or books during class will be allowed. 

Please arrive at class fifteen minutes early to allow time for setup.  Please do not arrive any earlier than this time!

Many classes require some prep work to be done before class. Arriving unprepared will prevent your class from proceeding smoothly. Please be sure to review the entire pattern/book before class.


BSS (basic sewing supplies) are required for most classes (scissors, pins, rulers, thread, et cetera). Double-check to make sure you have your foot pedal and cord for your machine.
