Sewing is now more important than ever.
Our students of all ages have become sewing heroes by making and donating masks, others are proactively making masks for themselves and their families, and a lot of us are simply sewing for a sense of comfort, productivity and fun as we isolate in our homes.
So! Let's get back to it!
A Soft Opening for Our Studio
As of May 4, our studio is open by appointment for brief shopping or class signups. To protect the health and safety of our customers and students, we are following and enforcing the CDC guidelines for social distancing, sanitizing, wearing masks and limited occupancy.
We are cautiously and tentatively opening up our classes, subject to adjustments in schedules and class size.
- May 26 - The Adults Basic Sewing classes resume.
- June 1 - Kids Summer Sewing Camps schedule begins.
- Other class offerings are available case-by-case as private sessions or via online format, such as Zoom meetings. This includes Fast Start classes; Beginning Quilting; Sergers; and Fitting classes. Please contact Sherry directly by phone at 281-493-1941 or text at 713-504-3989.
We have so missed our students and customers! And we just can't wait to see everyone again!
But please know that foremost in our minds is your health safety; and we appreciate your understanding as we implement CDC practices and adjust our schedules as necessary to comply with recommendations of health authorities.
One way or another . . . . we will keep on sewing!
We're working on it!
Our plans are slowly taking shape and are mostly offered via informal sessions on Zoom. As we (especially Sherry!) work through the learning curve, we will provide more formal educational content among our class offerings.
Let us know what types of online learning would be most useful to you -- sew-alongs, 1-on-1 virtual lessons, webinars, etc.
We're so happy to be welcoming our kids back to sewing class on June 1 for the Summer Sewing Camps!
We'll be working diligently to stay safe while still having a good time. We've worked out ways to practice social distancing during classes to provide plenty of personal space for each student to work comfortably.
- Students will each have their own work areas spaced 6ft. apart.
- There will have be changes to the way supplies are handled.
- We will no longer provide storage for students' supplies in the studio. Students will need take their supplies boxes with them to and from home when attending each class.
- Sewing supplies should be kept in plastic or hard surface containers that are easy to sanitize with wipes. Fabric covered baskets are best kept permanently at home.
- Parents! If your child's sewing kit is still being stored at the studio, you are invited to pick it up so they can keep sewing at home.
- Please Note: Kits belonging to students who have not attended a class since last summer are subject to being recycled or disposed of. Check with us soon, especially if you don't plan to return to sewing class this summer.
Sewing is so touchy feely! And it's counter intuitive to try doing it in a no-touch fashion. We appreciate everyone's cooperation and understanding as we adjust our habits , practices and scheduling to this new (but hopefully temporary) world order.
Our New Motto: KEEP SEWING FUN!
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions or concerns about the details of our health practices.
