Stony Brook Sew & Vac is committed to supporting sewing enthusiasts in our community. We love to help people learn more about this hobby! We offer a number of different educational opportunities in our on-site classrooms and make sure people of all ages and skill levels can find a class that fits their needs and interests.
Our skilled team is excited to share our broad selection of classes. With hands-on courses that walk students through every step of a sewing project to in-depth classes that dive deep into the specific intricacies of software, we offer the perfect class for everyone! The courses we offer include instruction in basic and advanced sewing skills and serging for beginners and experienced students. Quilting and embroidery classes are also scheduled, with courses focusing on beginner skills or advanced techniques.
Youngsters between the ages of 10 and 18 can attend a special sewing camp, held for a full day during school vacation. Our summer program includes hands-on learning and professional instruction to help each pupil complete a project. Each child that registers will receive a list of supplies and the book title, which will be used for in-class learning.
Do you have a kid with an interest in sewing? We also host a Kids Basic class, which is held on a Saturday. This three-hour class is designed to give beginning sewing enthusiasts a chance to make a project under the guidance and supervision of one of our instructors. The class tuition includes all of the materials necessary to complete the project.
Stony Brook Sew & Vac also offers non-sewing classes! The Brother Scan-N-Cut technique is a popular hobby. We have two classes available, one to teach the basics to students and another to assist students with a first project. Signing up for either of these classes gives students an opportunity to practice this fun technique.
Our shop also schedules events throughout the year. An Anita Goodesign Embroidery Party gives students a chance to spend the day creating with machines provided by the retailer. We teach our students a variety of techniques, applicable for many different embroidery projects. The Row by Row Bordentown event involves free distribution of a sewing kit during a specific period.
With individual sewing spaces provided for each student and extensive opportunities for learning, Stony Brook Sew & Vac and all of our employees are eager to share this learning experience with sewing enthusiasts or anyone wishing to learn more about the hobby!
