Experienced sewing instructor Brigitte Parra is available for one-on-one sewing consultations to help you with everything from envisioning your project to learning specific sewing techniques and skills. Examples of projects you may bring in to work on with Brigitte’s assistance are: updating garments to suit your style, alterations, hemming, basic mending, zipper replacement, curtains, recreating a garment, or getting to know your personal sewing machine, etc. Available days and times for individual consults are generally Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30am-12:30pm and 1:00-3:00 pm.
What to Bring: Bring your garment and/or photos of ideas. Bringing a sewing machine tends to eat up time, so Brigitte can give you pointers on a Ragfinery machine that she’s familiar with and is already set up and ready to go. However, if you are interested in bringing your machine to get some pointers on how to use it, Brigitte can also help with this. Please contact us to let us know of your needs, and keep these factors in mind when planning how much time you would like to spend on a consultation.
Please call us to schedule an appointment (360)738-6977. Rates are as follows: $20 per hour.
