Classes at The Creative Needle!

When you take a class, attend an event, or join a monthly club, you become a member of The Creative Needle family.  Adding to your knowledge is certainly part of the adventure, but meeting up with fellow creative explorers makes the learning fun. Learning at The Creative Needle is a great way to make friends with people who share your passion while expanding your skills with our ever-changing selection of information-packed classes and fun-filled events. 


If you have purchased a new machine from us…congratulations!  We are honored that you have placed your confidence in The Creative Needle for learning and creativity. To make the most of your new machine, it is highly encouraged that you attend the “Sewing Machine Obedience” programs designed to help you get acquainted with your machine.

Current Offerings


Class Policies

Payment for class fees is required at sign-up in order to reserve your spot. Phoned-in registrations can be made with a credit card.

A supply list for your class will be available when registration is paid. Registered students will receive a 10% store discount on supplies listed. We do appreciate the opportunity to provide you with the materials your instructor has requested.

We want all our students to enjoy their class experience, and we try to keep the classroom comfortable for all. There are many things that can disrupt a student’s learning, and we appreciate your understanding that we are unable to accommodate children or visitors in class. We also ask that you mute or turn off your cell phones during instruction.

You and your classmates will enjoy your class so much more if you come to class on time and prepared:

All sewing, embroidery machine and serger classes require a machine that is in good working order. Technicians will not be available during the event to troubleshoot or repair machines. 

It is always best for you to try to thread your machine and wind the bobbin before coming to class. We always show you how when you purchase your machine so you can go home, take it out of the box and play! You must present a sales receipt to take any free class.

For our software students, please bring your laptop, power cord, and software dongle (if necessary) with you to any software classes. If you do not have a laptop, you can follow along with the instructor.
