Virtual Classes

The 2021 Sewing & Stitchery Expo was offered virtually. Typically, the Sewing & Stitchery Expo is held at the Washington State Fair & Event Center in Puyallup, Wash. Classes are taught on the fairgrounds and include lecture, machine, and handwork.

Download the 2021 Virtual Sewing & Stitchery Expo Class Catalog to learn more about past class offerings.

Classes range from 45-minute lecture/demos to four-hour, intensive learning experiences. Your class time will vary based on the class type and your teacher, but you can plan to walk away with a new skill or a new idea, no matter what!

Hands-on Two, Three and Four Needle classes may require student supplies and a class kit, and some may even need homework! More information will be available about those classes before ticket sales begin. Teachers are paid directly for kit fees.
