New workshops coming soon!

It’s getting pretty exciting in the sewing studio these days as more and more requests are coming through for new classes! So, with that in mind here are some classes starting at the Maker Mill in March:

Two sessions of Fashion Sewing 101… for grades 3-8 AND for teen/adults… are happening on Tuesdays, starting on March 1st. With an afternoon class (5-7pm) for students in grades 3-8 and an evening class (7-9pm) reserved just for high school students and adults, we’re looking forward to exploring the world of fashion sewing with new students in North Andover. These workshop series are geared to age and experience level of the registered students and focus on basic sewing machine skills while creating a custom dress.

Take a look at our student gallery page on facebook for samples of past projects, too. A new pattern design is selected for each 6-week session so even if you’ve taken the class before, you’ll create something entirely different and continue building new skills.


Returning students, and those with previous fashion sewing experience, are invited to try an all-new offering: Fashion Sewing 201, starting Wednesday, March 23. With a choice of three patterns to work on, this advanced beginner series reinforces existing skills and focuses on improving stitching technique with the goal of being able to work independently.
