The Green Needle specializes in sustainable and eco-friendly sewing classes. Our motto is Reuse, Reduce, Repurpose and we apply that to our classes. We offer sewing classes and workshops - from beginner to advanced. Our teaching methods are based on a practical approach. From alteration, deconstruction, and restyling, the students learn about clothing construction, pattern drafting, tailoring methods, body types, principle and details of design, and textile. We give students the foundation needed to sew like professionals, while also teaching in an artistic way in order to create unique, timeless and sustainable fashion. After taking our courses, students will be able to repair, alter, restyle and design clothes for themselves, family, friends, and potential customers.
The Green Needle offers a variety of sewing classes for kids and adults. Our classes focus on sustainability and learning how to sew through re-purposing and up-cycling. We offer 8 week courses as well as single-day workshops! Our small class sizes allow for lots of one-on-one learning.
