Sip & Stitch: All New Sewing Workshops for Adults!

sip-and-stitch-tote-2Our #1 question here at TFC is always “Do you have classes for adults?”. Well I’m very happy to write that We Do Now!

Sip & Stitch Sewing Workshops for Adults are social sewing parties that combine easy to learn sewing projects for beginners and experts alike with the social atmosphere of a girls night out. While some say wine and sewing don’t mix I say, ya they do! What better way to relax after sewing than with a glass of wine.

Our latest Sip & Stitch event took place in March and we created tote bags. Using a high quality faux leather students traced and cut from a pattern, sewed and hammered (literally)  their bags together. Using a leather punch and rivets we added real leather straps to each tote bag and each student took home a new, chic handbag! It was simple and we had a lot of fun.

Our upcoming Sip & Stitch workshops will be:
Merrick Long Island Location:

  • April 15th 6:30-8:30PM Maxi Skirt: Start spring off right with a comfy jersey maxi skirt. This easy project features a fold-over waist band and can also be made knee length or shorter.
  • May 20th 6:30-8:30PM Caftan Cover-up: The best swimsuit cover-up for its breezy style, a Caftan is a warm weather must-have that can double as a top! Using a gauzy cotton we’ll sew up this easy project just in time for summer.
  • June 10th 6:30-8:30PM Faux Leather Tote: Our favorite kind of bag – practical, functional and perfect for a laptop. This unlined faux leather tote will have you sewing and using fun tools like a leather punch.
