Virtual Classes

We can’t wait for you to join us from your home sewing room or studio! Download your PDF of the 2021 Virtual Sewing & Stitchery Expo Class Catalog here.

Our classes will all be taught on Zoom. A free Zoom account is required to participate, and you’ll want to make sure you have the most recent version! To make a free account, sign up at Zoom.

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 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 when tickets go on sale in January. If your class has a kit, that fee is paid directly to the teacher through their own website.

There are hundreds of opportunities to learn and connect with other sewists and fiber artists. Join our e-mail list by clicking this link!

All classes will be taught live in Pacific Standard Time, and will be available via recordings for 30 days after the show for registered students. It may take us a couple of days to get the classes online, so please be patient!

Expo offers four levels of learning experiences:

One Needle Classes Cartoon sewing needle and thread

One Needle Classes are a traditional lecture/demo format — the perfect class for an introduction to a new concept, tips and tricks to make your creative life better, or brushing up on fundamentals. A couple of our Virtual One Needle classes are 90 minutes, because the content just couldn’t fit into 45 — you’ll still pay the One Needle rate.

  • 45 minutes
  • Price: $6

Two-Needle classes will not be offered at the 2021 Virtual Sewing & Stitchery Expo.

Three Needle Classes Cartoon sewing needle and threadCartoon sewing needle and threadCartoon sewing needle and thread

You will learn new techniques or finish projects in these engaging hands-on classes. Three Needle Classes are a great opportunity to hone your skills and develop new ones. In the virtual format, you will need your own machine and any tools required for the class. Teachers will provide a complete supply list and any homework needed before class begins.

  • 2.5 hours
  • Price: $30
    PLUS KIT FEE, if applicable (Kit fee is payable to the instructor.) See class listing for additional student supplies.
