support small business

Support small businesses in your community and help someone keep their dream alive. Just imagine what the world would like without small businesses like hair or nail salons, gift shops, cleaners, coffee shops, privately owned restaurants, delis, and yes arts and crafts shops that offer knitting, painting and sewing or quilting lessons!

Don’t get me wrong, there is still a place for all the larger corporations, chains, and franchises however small businesses still make up a large portion of the shops we see in our communities. The owners of these small businesses are people with dreams. No matter what those dreams are they can’t survive without your support.

At Sewing 4 Fun we are one of those small businesses who offers individual and groups sewing/quilting lessons, birthday parties, and special events for scout troops and sew much more.  We start children as young as 6, and will work with adults of all ages. Our specialty may be the beginner, or the person who hasn’t sewn in awhile. but we don’t stop there. Let us help you get started today or help push you and your love of sewing to new levels. In addition to the social aspects sewing offers, studies show that sewing can actually lower your blood pressure and help reduce stress which ultimately will improve your overall mood. I like to say….”my sewing room is my happy place”. And that’s because when I’m here, nothing else matters.

There are many ways to give the gift of creativity. Sewing and quilting lessons are one, kids “try sewing”, or gift vouchers which can be customized and printed out are another.
