Please join me in my studio for 5 days of fun sewing and light embroidery! This class features three projects.
Classes are scheduled Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. The studio opens at 8:30 am and closes at 5:00 pm so you may choose to stay longer or arrive earlier to work on your own. Lunch is provided and will include a variety of cooked meals, soup, and sandwiches. I will be making New Orleans family-style meals with some options. Don’t worry; I’m not going to subject you to spicy foods, only to dazzle you with flavor! I promise you won’t find better food anywhere else…well almost.
My 30-plus years of sewing, teaching, and design expertise will help you perfect your sewing skills while enjoying a tranquil 5-days of sewing bliss. A giving attitude and patience allows to serve sewists of almost every level. Each student is of my highest concern and as a self-taught sewist, with gentle prodding and extreme encouragement, I will lead you to your ultimate goal. As a native New Orleanian, I teach with an easy-going attitude to facilitate confidence in your abilities resulting in success. But be prepared to be challenged!.
Class will be held at Wendy Schoen’s Sewing Studio, conveniently located in the Irish Channel region of Uptown New Orleans. The spacious, well equipped studio is furnished with large tables, comfy chairs, fluorescent lighting, rotary cutters, drafting paper and large spacious tables; all for your use.
You will be required to bring a sewing machine in good working order. My experience on every machine model is invaluable. You must purchase your own supplies prior to arrival including threads, machine needles and everything else you might need. I do not have a full working shop any longer so my supplies are quite limited. I do have some fabrics and trims, many threads and some notions but definitely not everything you’ll need. Complete Kits are included in the school fee.
In New Orleans, we live life to make all feel welcome so leave your troubles behind and join us in the Big Easy. I encourage you to arrive early and stay late so you can enjoy all my wonderful city has to offer. Won’t you join me?
