Local Sewing and Mending-Madison

In our home town of Madison, Wisconsin we have some great programs going:

Beginning and Intermediate Sewing and Mending classes

The Sewing Machine Project® offers classes at local community centers, serving clients designated by these centers. The curriculum focuses on basic sewing and mending and becoming acquainted with the sewing machine–how to operate and maintain it. Each course runs six weeks. Students are required to attend all 6 sessions in the course and “Pay it Forward” by completing a project to be donated to the Center where the class is held. After meeting these requirements students are “gifted” the machine on which they learned along with a small starter sewing kit. Our talented instructors encourage students to take risks and push boundaries within each lesson. Our beloved volunteers float in the classroom, offering support as needed. The depth of community created when people come together to sew and learn from one another is astounding.

Mending

Mending is done on the spot on a first come, first served basis. There’s no drop off or pick up, we do what we can do in the time allowed.
