What we do goes beyond sewing lessons. It’s about creating a community of individuals who are searching for better ways to express their individuality.

The Sewing Hive isn’t a fabric store; it’s a place to learn or strengthen your skills in sewing, sourcing fabrics, and pattern fitting & making. Our goal is to partner with local fabric store Sew to Speak to provide material and supplies for our classes. For students who want to shop on their own, a supply list is provided.
