About Sewing Classes

  • Update: I am open for business again!

If you’re a beginner, you might start with sewing a pair of pajama pants or an elastic-waist skirt. You’ll learn:

  • How to Use Your Sewing Machine
  • How to Sew Straight and Curved Seams
  • How to Read a Pattern
  • How to Cut and Assemble a Simple Garment
  • Basic Fitting
  • Basic Seam Finishing
  • Basic Hand Sewing

With each new project, you’ll practice more sophisticated sewing techniques.

Not a beginner? That’s fine! You can brush up on your skills or learn something new. Students of all experience levels are welcome!

Class Times
Classes are taught by appointment daily. Afternoon and evening classes are available.


  • One-hour classes: $150 per month
  • Two-hour classes: $260 per month


For more information, please view the Student FAQ and the Tuition Policy FAQ. If you live near Memphis, Tennessee and would like sewing lessons, please contact me to arrange the details.

  8. Bessie Rowe says:

    I taught myself to sew when my daughters were small, so I know I need some lessons. I love to sew (just started again, as I have a great niece who is almost two, and I love the newer children’s clothes, mixing coordinating fabrics, etc.) but need some help! I have started making some cute outfits for Abigail, but I want them to look more professional, so could you help? I am semi-retired – work at my own pace and time, so I could have classes during day and would prefer that. Please let me know what you can do. Thank you!

    Hi. I’m trying to learn about your classes. And for $150 a month how many classes is that

    • Lisha Vidler says:

      Hi! Classes are held once a week, but the exact number of classes per month varies, since some months have four weeks, while others have five. The monthly tuition fee stays the same, regardless of how many weeks there are in the month, because the cost is averaged out based on 52 weeks in the year. I hope that answers your question! If not, feel free to send me a private message using the “Contact Me” page. Thanks!
