sewing classes in the Richmond area 2013 – summer sessions

May 19, 2013

As I mentioned in response to a comment, I’m adding my teaching schedule through the summer to the blog this evening. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I’ll add this to the “adult classes” and “kids” pages also.

Adult classes:

I am offering 2 summer sessions at Short Pump. The dates are:

Session 1 : 6/3, 10, 17, 24 and 7/1

Session 2: 7/8, 15, 22, 29 and 8/5

Dates for the Chesterfield classes are:

Session 1: 6/19, 26 & 7/3,10,17      Wednesday evenings

Session 2: 6/11, 18, 25, 7/2, & 9    Tuesday evenings

Session 3:  7/16, 23,30, 8/6 & 13   Tuesday evenings

All classes meet from 6-8:00 pm.

Registration is open for the class beginning 6/3 and the class is half filled.

Registration is open for the class beginning on 7/8 already and there are many openings yet.

I encourage you to sign up as early as you can commit, as the summer classes are usually popular.


Kids can sew! is a progressive sewing class for children. Whether they have taken a beginner’s class before, or not, they will have a wonderful time improving their skills, or learning to sew.
First timers will learn to thread a machine and sew basic stitches, then how to use a sewing pattern and they will make PJ pants for themselves. Many students will finish these before class is complete and will enjoy another project, like making a zippered pillow.

This “camp” is offered 3 times during the summer and students are welcome to come to each session and build on their skills.
Returning students are encouraged to e-mail me and work out some plans for their class time, so the instructor is prepared to help the student make the most of their time in class.
If your child wants to learn to make clothes, decorator items, accessories, or doll clothes for her A/G doll, this is a great place to for them.
Cherri Hankins, the instructor has been teaching and working with kids since her own high school days volunteering with TAG students, then raising her children, while teaching Sunday School, AWANA and teaching at art centers and universities. She loves to share her joy of sewing.
Each student should also have a $50 gift card to purchase supplies throughout the week.

Cost: $210
