Private Lessons

Use our private lessons to start a project, finish a project, complete alterations or learn a new skill.

Private lessons

Tuesdays through Saturdays, 2-5 pm.

$35/hour/person

Have a special sewing project where you need expert help? Have a new sewing machine or serger and don’t know how to use it? Need a one-on-one session to learn or brush up on fashion design, draping, patternmaking or illustration skills?

Then private lessons are for you.

All sessions are one-on-one with the appropriate experienced apparel professionals.

You must register at least 48 hours before attending.  Book your spot now! Just let us know which day and time you prefer, the project you have in mind and, if you’re learning a machine, the make and model of your machine when you register.

SEWING PARTIES!  Please contact us if you’d like to arrange a private lesson at Portland Sewing for your group of 6 or more. [email protected]

Class policies:  Private lessons have a 24-hour cancellation policy.  Please don’t forfeit your fee and waste the instructor’s time.  Let us know 24 hours before the lesson if you can’t make it so someone else can use that time.
