We offer an extensive class schedule for both the novice and experienced sewer.

Kids Classes — Want to share your love of sewing? We teach children 8 years and older the basics. These shortened classes accommodate kids' attention spans, filled with simple projects to make learning fun, and give children the sense of accomplishment. Some past projects include: pocket purses, chenille detailing added to ready to wear pants.

Beginners' Classes — Haven't sewn before or haven't sewn since high school? This is the perfect class for you. Whether as a true beginner or just needing a refresher course, we cover all tile basics.

Quilting Classes — start to piece quilt classes, beginning appliqué class, then follow these up with machine quilting classes. We also have a variety of other quilt piecing classes.

Beginning Serger Classes — These classes are open to most manufacturers' brands. Take this class and learn everything your serger can do that you never knew was possible.

Computer Classes — these classes teach you how to integrate your computer with your sewing. After all, your computer isn't for just playing games.

We also carry serger supplies, embroidery supplies (including OESD thread), and sewing supplies. Come in and check out our displays. Can't find it? Just ask - we maintain an extensive catalog of software, furniture, and supplies. If we don't have it on our sales floor, we can get it for you in a matter of days.

While you are in Sandy's, check out our sewing tables and cabinets by Horn, Tailor Made, and Koala. Don’t sew on your dining room table any more or lug your machine out of the hall closet. Make sewing convenient and easy on your back and arms - sew at the height that's right for you. We have a table or cabinet for every machine and for any room in your home.

As a bonus to Sandy's customers, if you purchase a serger or combination sewing/embroidery machine, you are automatically enrolled in Serger Club or Embroidery Club for 1 year from the date of purchase. These fun clubs meet once and month and demonstrate new and exciting ways to use your machines. Some of the past projects include: Quilting with your serger and hoop quilting with your embroidery machine.

Even if you didn't buy your machine from Sandy’s, contact us about sewing and serger lessons. Our lessons are open to most manufacturers' machines. We will take the mystery out of your machine and answer any questions you may have regarding its operation.

We have a great repair service; Rob & Les work on all brands of machines.
Bring them in anytime and we will take care of your problem
