Private Classes

The Studio at Pamela's Patterns in Vernon CT offers private and semi private lessons for those who need one-to-one help. There are many subjects that we can think of that may apply to your needs, but if it is not listed here, don't be shy about asking. Between Melissa and Pamela, there is a lifetime of learning and teaching sewing and related skills!

Private lessons are $50 per hour and scheduled in advance. Semi-private (2 people) are $65 per hour. They are booked in blocks of 1 hour, and can be as long as a full day (or more!). Email with your name, cell #, an approximate amount of time needed, and a brief description of what you need help with. We will get back to you with available dates and times that work for you and the instructor.

"I had the opportunity to take private lessons with Pamela at her lovely studio in Vernon. I can honestly say that my sewing, fitting skills, and confidence improved significantly. After my lessons, she replied quickly when I had follow-up questions. So far, I have made 5 garments from her pattern line and 2 from Palmer/Pletsch patterns she helped me fit!"
