Lucky parents will soon be sending their kids back to school, here in Hillsboro, Oregon. But what about after school activities? Sure, there are sports and music lessons but what about learning a life skill? September is National Sewing Month and Itchin to be Stitchin Sewing Cafe is doing their part to help increase the number of sewists. Sewing is fun, you see results almost immediately giving gratification and it’s creative. Sewing is also an activity where you use your math skills and your eye for color. We often describe garment construction as a three dimensional jigsaw puzzle!
We’d love to see some new sewists this school year. We had a great launch of our kids’ program this past winter and we’d love to see even more kids taking advantage of this low cost, hassle-free activity. Everyone is a winner here as they learn new skills and build on them to begin creating fashions, toys and accessories.

Are you a home-school family? We do classes during the day as well as after school. Normal after school start times are 3:30 and 4:00 pm, elementary students come for one hour, middle school and senior high students come for two hours. Remember, you can’t be the next Project Runway designer if you don’t even know how to sew.
We are conveniently located in Historic Downtown Hillsboro at 315 E Main #204. If you came to classes last school year you’ll be happy to know we are in a much larger space now! We still limit classes to 4 to enable us to provide close supervision and one-on-one instruction.
We are one block from the Third/Washington MAX station and half a block from the #46 bus stop.
OH! and we’ve added adult evening classes over the summer and they have been a real success. Our ladies have made two quilting projects already, and their most recent class was on the feet that came with their machine as well as learning how to use free motion foot for stippling (you quilters out there know what that is!)
So consider adding us to your already busy schedule, we’d love to have you join us!
We put the thinking cap on to make the space workable for our tiniest student
