Learn to Sew!

If it were possible to give Karyn & the team at The Workroom 100 stars, I would! Their attention to detail, care & thoughtfulness are just a few reasons why I will continue to support their shop — bonus is that they carry the most amazing collection of goodies!
Great functional website that makes it easy to order and do local pick up! They are always super quick to get orders ready. Keeping me sane with sewing projects during the pandemic.
Great store, helpful staff, always have a great range of stock and their vintage button section is amazing!
I took the Sewing Machine Essentials class today with Johanna instructing.
I loved my experience, thank you!
Johanna was great. I feel like I walked away with tips & knowledge that could otherwise have taken me ages to figure out. And the class left me so excited about making things!
