FAQ

 

 What's The Sewing Escape? Is it like JoAnn's or Michael's?

The Sewing Escape is a place where people can meet other people that share their interests. It’s a space to relax with projects, both individually or with friends. The studio offers a place to come and unwind, improve sewing talents, and learn new techniques, whether it’s sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery or needlepoint or anything in-between.

Come to sew individually, with friends, or during one of our workshops or classes. The Sewing Escape is a lounge that’s here for you. Fabric and Notions are available for purchase, but the space is primarily used as a lounge to getaway with your favorite project.

 Do you also sell fabric and notions?

The Sewing Escape offers many unique fabrics and notions for purchase. See what’s in stock on here!
