Apologies...I am not taking new students at this time.

I am taking a break from adding new students, so that I have time to focus on some other projects. If you are interested in lessons, please send me an email with your name and what you'd like to learn and/or what project you'd like help with. I'll put you on the wait list and will let you know when lessons are open again. 

In the meantime, there are tons of great sewing resources online on YouTube and sites like and


 Solo Lessons 

One-on-one lessons for all kinds of goals and projects. 

  • Learn to sew
  • Expand your sewing skills
  • Learn to use your sewing machine
  • help with a sewing project you're stuck on or never started
  • Learn how to do your own mending & alterations
  • Learn how to alter and/or make your own patterns
  • Teach your child to sew (Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.)

For an hourly rate (currently $40 per hour) we will work with you in our workshop on what you want to learn and/or accomplish. We can do one lesson or ten, that's up to you. Two hours seems to be an optimal length for solo lessons, but some lessons are a bit shorter or longer. 

You should know that quilting is not our area of expertise, but we can help with all kinds of other projects, such as curtains, pillows, stuffed animals, doll clothes, reusable shopping bags, and of course, clothing. We can work on both hand and machine sewing, and we also have a treadle sewing machine for those who want to bridge the gap between the two.

If you are interested in solo lessons, please contact us to discuss your goals or pop into the workshop during our drop-in hours. 

 Small Group Classes 

We do not have any group classes in the works at the moment. If you would like to schedule a special class just for your small group let us know.

 Thrift with Tangle Syx 

Class Description: Let’s go shopping together at the Turnstyle Thrift Store in Blue Hill. Then we’ll return to the workshop and elevate the gems you find into something that truly fits you and your style. Together we’ll change necklines, shorten sleeves, cut dresses in half, and whatever else we can imagine. If you sew, we’ll work on the alterations together, if you don’t sew, we’ll handle it. This is a one-day class, so we'll focus on changes that can be made quickly and easily. Some alterations will be done during class time. Each session comes with one additional hour of alterations or solo lesson time.
