Fine Fabrics & Inspired Sewing

Class Policies

At The LINDEN TREE, we strive to help people fall in love with sewing.  As a small boutique shop, we offer private and semi-private classes, knowledgeable instructors and lots of TLC!


We have classes for the absolute beginner, as well as the more experienced sewist. Machine sewing classes are available for students age 8 to 108.  Class topics range from sewing apparel, home décor, quilts and more! Click on a link to check out our classes:

After-School Classes

Summer Camps


 Please feel free to contact us directly to inquire about a special date or unique project.


The best way to register for a class is to come in to our shop and speak with one of our helpful instructors. For more information about registration or scheduling, you can call us during business hours, or email us.  You may even be able to register for some classes on-line from our recently developed new website!

Many classes fill quickly, so be sure to register early to ensure that you are able to enroll.


All materials needed for the class are offered at a 10% discount.

Semi-private (up to 4 students) classes are offered at $24 per hour/student.  Most classes are 2 hours in length.

Private (1-on-1) classes are offered at $34 per hour/student with a minimum of 2 hours/class.

Payment in full is due at time of registration.  For sewing instruction that spans several consecutive days (e.g., camps), payment for the entire camp is due at the time of registration.

We also offer the option of scheduling regular, ongoing classes (e.g., weekly).  Registration occurs on a monthly basis, and payment for all sessions (e.g., 4 sessions) is due prior to the first of the month.  This payment holds your spot for this ongoing timeslot (even if you may miss some sessions).


Full refunds are granted for single class or camp cancellation notifications received at least 7 days in advance.  For cancellation notifications received at least 3 days in advance, we can grant a partial (50%) refund used as partial payment for a future class.  We are unable to grant refunds for cancellations with less than 3 days notice, or for weekly classes.

In the event that we need to cancel a class due to low enrollment or other unforeseen reasons, we will provide a full refund.  If you prefer, we can apply your payment to a future class.


1) Sewing Machine:  We have a limited number of quality Janome machines available to use for classes.  They can be reserved at the time of class registration.  For semi-private classes, we ask that you use one of our machines (unless the instructor clears you to bring your own machine).   For private classes, feel free to use one of our machines or to bring your own machine (with manual, power cord and foot pedal) in good working order.

2) Fabric:  As an independent boutique fabric store, we value the difference it makes to sew with beautiful designer fabric.  We ask that our sewing class customers support our shop by selecting from the fabrics we have thoughtfully selected to use in our sewing classes. 

3) Basic Sewing Kit (BSK):  You will need to use a number of sewing notions for any given class, so we ask for you to bring a Basic Sewing Kit (BSK) to all classes.  A BSK includes: pins, magnetic pincushion, sewing scissors or snips, a seam ripper, and a bodkin.  All of these supplies and more are available for discounted purchase at the LINDEN TREE.
