Crafted SPACES

Explore Your Creativity!

Private Lessons

Crafted Spaces provides private sewing lessons to individuals and private groups. If you will like a little help along the way or have a schedule that makes it difficult to commit to our group classes; then consider our private by-the-hour lessons. Our one hour sessions are priced at $30 per hour. Blocks of time are also available and are based on beginner, intermediate and advance level pricing.

Sessions are scheduled based on available days and times. Classes are available on an ongoing basis and are focused on helping you develop the skills you need. We provide one-on-one assistance with projects you will like to make.

Sewing machines and tools are available. Sessions are available for children and adults. Beginner, intermediate and advanced students are welcome.

Please contact for more information.
