Times Square Sewing Classes

At Times Square we believe the best way of learning is doing.  This belief sets the tone for our many educational classes. Enjoy learning from experienced instructors with hands-on lessons.  Whether you are interested in getting to know your new machine or ready to create a stunning quilt, our classes will help you achieve your goals.  Classes are offered for ALL sewing levels in ALL types of sewing. Just ask!


Signing up for Our Classes

  • To allow for proper preparation, register for classes at least 1 week in advance.  If remaining seats are available after this time, we will try to accommodate you, but can make no guarantees.  
  • In addition, customers enjoy 10% off the day of their class.  It's a great way to learn about a new tool and get one for your private stash.  
  • Registration can be made in the store or by phone. Please remember that the full class fee is required to guarantee your seat.
  • Upon registration, you will receive a supply list and any other applicable documents.  Supply lists can be picked up in the store, or emailed.
Every month, we offer a variety of classes to introduce participants to new techniques, fun designs, specific sewing machine education, and more.  The list below describes classes offered.  Please check out our calendar on the homepage to view our current schedule.  Is there a class you want, but it's not on the calendar?  Let the store know of your interest.  A class can be scheduled with 3 or more participants.
