The Sewing School


Thank you for your interest in our sewing school.  Our sewing school was developed 35 years ago...and we continue to teach beginners, designers and artists the skills needed to sew your dreams into reality. 

Fundamentals of Garment Sewing
- Our Basic Sewing program emphasizes classic garment construction, creating skills to build on for a lifetime of sewing.  Learn to sew from the very beginning or fine tune your skills for a professional finish.Our Fundamental Series is our most popular series for the creative person that wants to be able to independently sew what they want, along with having successful results in fit, flattery and design.

Fundamentals of Fitting
- The course on Fitting explores drafting and measurements on the paper pattern and then completes the education by applying additional pattern edits to the cloth.  This 3-D soft architectural program emphasizes what makes a proper fit and how to achieve the desired polished look in all of your garments.

Design, Fit & Sew- These classes are a great place to start after completing the Basics.  In these classes you will complete wardrobe staples that are made to fit you, your style and body so that they are the most flattering garments that bring out the very best you can be.

Classic Garment Construction- These classes focus on the classic construction of wardrobe staples that every woman needs to look her best!  Take these classes to learn the classical way for constructing couture garments that will fit you and last a lifetime.


Mastery Classes / New Owner Series 
-  These classes were designed by Susan Igou & Vanessa Empire to teach new BERNINA owners all about their new machines.  If you purchased your machine from Studio BERNINA these classes are complimentary*, a small kit fee may be required for fabric, and kit preparation. 
*These Mastery classes are complimentary to those who have purchased a BERNINA sewing machine from Studio BERNINA. If you purchased your BERNINA machine from another dealer, please call us to ask about our adoption program.
