Private Sewing Lessons

Private lessons are a great alternative to our group classes/workshops! In private lessons you will work one on one with an experienced teacher who will tailor (pun intended!) their instruction to your sewing skill level and goals.

Topics for private lessons can include - but are not limited to! - the following:

  • Getting to know your sewing machine or serger
  • Working with patterns
  • Pattern alteration
  • Working with knits
  • Draping
  • Fitting
  • Garment construction
  • Preparing for fashion school (portfolio requirements)
  • Quilting

Private lessons are generally scheduled from Tuesdays to Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A session can be as short as half an hour and as long as two hours. Our staff can give you an idea of how long they feel you will need to meet your goals.

Prices for our private lessons are $50+GST per hour for 1 person. If you are planning on doing four or more hours of private instruction, it's worth pre-paying for a block of four hours. A block of four hours is $180+GST, saving you $20+GST! We can also often accommodate 2 people for a private lesson, depending on the goal. The rate for this is $60+GST per hour.

If you have not done a lesson or group class with us before, we will require pre-payment to hold your spot. This can be done in person or over the phone with a credit card or we can send you an invoice via email for your to pay on-line at your convenience. Pre-payments are non-refundable. Should you need to reschedule a booked lesson, please contact us no less than 48 hours before to discuss your options.

If you are interested in booking a private lesson, please email Tanya at classes(@)themakehouse.ca or call 236-475-8549. Please provide information about your skill level and what your sewing goals are.
