Start Sewing Today!
This beginner level class will get you comfortable with sewing from a home sewing pattern. (Student must have ability to thread sewing machine prior to starting class) This class teaches you how to cut out a pattern, make sense of the instructions, and construct a finished item. You’ll walk away from this course with a completed tote bag made entirely by you. The sewing pattern used in class is yours to keep for future projects.
For this class you will need to supply: (All fabric should be washed and pre-shrunk)
Tote: 3⁄4 yard heavier-weight fabric for outside of bag and 1⁄2 yard lighter-weight cotton fabric for inside lining of bag, matching thread.
Limited notions (zippers, thread, pins, etc) are available at Owl & Thistle at an additional charge.

Nestled in the heart of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Owl & Thistle scours the globe as well as our own backyard to bring unique items to Brooklyn. From locally made dresses (some actually sewn in store) and Brooklyn made chocolates, to organic soaps and play dough, we strive to provide sustainable goods at fair prices. A variety of classes in sewing, soap making, leather working, knitting and more are taught on-site to further our commitment to hand-made goods.
