Sew Easy Sewing Class Schedule Details

**This post is pinned to the top, scroll down for new information** 

The classes may not be listed in the correct order below. I try to list them with the dates from current moving into the future but it doesn’t always work out that way. Unfortunately I have yet to figure out how to make them re-order themselves once the date for that event has passed, lol. There is probably “an app for that” but I haven’t found it.

Visit the link labeled “Classes and Events Calendar” at the top of the page to see the classes on a calendar complete with pictures and links to the descriptions.

Should you see a class that you really want to take but the date has passed, it is OK. Just get in touch with me and we can set up either a private class or if enough people are interested, I can put it back on the calendar. 🙂 The cost is the same whether there is one student or multiple students.

If you have questions about supplies, dates, times, cost, or anything else related to the classes, please call 575.623.3774 and speak with Krisann (me). I’ll do my best to answer them.
