How much does it cost, and what’s included?
There are variable costs for the different workshops. Visit Anna Maria Horner’s website for cost information and further details. Each month brings a different focus to the workshops, and new guests too:

June is all about PATCHWORK! As gardens explode with color, our sewing studio will be exploding with beautiful energy and colorful patchwork. Anna Maria will be teaching a one-day workshop with lunch as well as a mini workshop just for kiddos. Joining Anna Maria for the weekend workshop will be the crazy-talented and lovely Amy Butler who will share her amazing color workshop set within a weekend long sew-in.

July is all about GARMENTS! Summer gives us loads of opportunities to show off our flirty frock-making skills, so lets fire up the machines and sew something.

Joining Anna Maria for the weekend workshop will be the amazing and knowledgeable Liesl Gibson, who will share a wealth of garment making skills throughout a weekend long sew-in.

August is all about STRETCHING FASHION! Some of the simplest garments you will ever sew will be those made from jersey knits, but how would you know if you’ve been too afraid to try? Anna Maria will be teaching an informative one-day workshop with lunch as well as a mini workshop just for kiddos. Joining Anna Maria for the weekend workshop will be the beautiful and magnetic Natalie Chanin who will inspire students to think of materials and hand work in a new way.

September is all about NEEDLEWORKS! The ornate beauty that occurs by using the simplest of tools can inspire a lifetime of making. Anna Maria will be teaching a one-day workshop with lunch as well as a mini workshop for kiddos. Joining Anna Maria for the weekend will be the friendly and ridiculously talented Heather Ross who be sharing handwork tricks and how-tos throughout a weekend long sew-in.
