About Us

Molly

Sew & Sews Place, LLC, was opened in 2006, by a woman who deeply loves fabric. Namely me-Molly. I became frustrated at not being able to find fabrics that I wanted to spend my time, energy and money on. I have been sewing since I was six, mostly for myself. I have quilted and made home decor, but my true love is clothing. Now I have a sewing studio full of sewing machines, notions, patterns and dressmaker and designer fabrics that I enjoy spending my time and energy on, and I hope you will too!

All of these fabrics are hand-picked by me. I touch and feel everything first. Swatches are just too much fun! The prices are very reasonable. I'm an avid shopper, and I look at it as a challenge to find the best prices for both of us.

As for patterns, I carry patterns from independent designers, not the 'big4' (although we may use them in classes). Most of these designers are located here in the US and a few are from Canada. They actually listen to your feedback on their product lines! So look for patterns from Sew Chic Pattern Co., Amy Butler, Jennifer Pagnelli, Collette, Pettites Plus, The Sewing Workshop and Indygo Junction.

• It is necessary to pre-register at least one day prior to the start of each class

• All classes are appropriate for ages 14 and over

• No babies or children are permitted to accompany adults to class.


Cancellation Policy: Class fees are non-refundable. Please check your calendar carefully before committing to a class enrollment. Cancellations must be made no later than 3 business days BEFORE the date of your class*, in order to maintain a class credit. Failure to do so means forfeiture of your class fee. If arrangements are made before the deadline, students may transfer fees, as a credit, to another class (subject to availability). There are no make-up classes for any classes missed. If you miss one class in a series you may not be able to continue with the series without first scheduling a private lesson ($35 per hour) to get caught up. Please keep in mind that Private Lessons are not always available.

* For example, if your class is at 12:30 PM on a Saturday you must call to cancel your class before 9:00 AM on the Wednesday before.

We know that’s a strict policy, but it helps us get wait-listers into cancelled spots in a timely fashion. We’re happy to discuss your dilemma on a case-to-case basis. In the unlikely event that Sew & Sews Place cancels class you can either opt to keep a credit for a future class with us, or choose to receive a full refund.
