Yet another week to relax with family and friends…huzzah!


2010 Class dates and crafts to be added later.

10 people max.

Fees are $10 per class for first person—each additional family member $8 each. Sign up and pay for 6 or more classes in advance and get them for $8 each.

Because of limited space preference will be given to those who pay in advance. If you register and want to pay on the day of class I will let you know a few days in advance if there is still room for you.

You may make up a class within the week you missed it by coming to one of the other classes OR sign up for a different class in the same price range. No refunds.

Classes will not wait for you to start if you are running late.

I will provide all supplies and materials for these classes.

Classes will be held at my house on Albuquerque’s Westside (will provide address to registered students).

Items will be almost entirely hand sewn and all projects are intended to be completed within the class time unless stated. Any machine sewing will be done prior to class by myself.

No siblings during class time please. Please make sure you are back by the time class ends because we have other planned family activities. Snacks and bottled/capped drinks are ok to bring. We do have cats but they will be locked up during class time.

If you would like to register or you have questions please email me at MomtasticStitchery@gmail.com

Tabitha Orr, Owner Momtastic Stitchery


Future classes will include making items to be donated to local charities-more information on this soon. Discounts will be also be given when we make items for charities.
