Alterations Fitting - General (not a bridal gown)

During Idaho's staged re-opening, sewBoise is back to fixing the fit of your clothes! The appointments are spaced to allow us adequate time together, and enough time between clients to thoroughly sanitize the spaces and surfaces involved. We'll be wearing masks during your fitting, and ask you to do so as well (despite your vaccination status) - we have some clean loaners here if you don't have your own. Pickups will all be curbside unless you set a pickup appointment to try your things on onsite.

90 Minute Beginner/Beginner+ Sewing Lesson

This level is for students who are brand new to sewing and/or working on building basic sewing skills. Students at the beginner to beginner-plus level use a sewing machine and its various accessories (yours or ours) or hand-sewing techniques, to sew stable, woven fabrics. Please let us know in the appointment notes what you'd like to work on and what your goals/interests are!

90 minute Intermediate-Advanced Sewing Lesson

This level is for students who have a solid foundation in sewing. Students at the intermediate level can use a sewing machine and its various accessories independently, as well as understand and use a commercial sewing pattern. Intermediate students are involved in learning progressively more complex sewing techniques and work with a wide variety of fabrics, including knits. If you are looking to learn to use the serger, or to alter or draft your own basic sewing patterns, this is the level for you.
