If you're a garment/fashion sewing instructor with a warm, encouraging, kind personality and a passion for teaching others how to sew their own clothes, we want you to teach with us!
Our Expertise and Approach
At Workroom Social, we teach adults how to sew clothes that fit their unique styles and individual body shapes and sizes, according to each student's personal preference.
We create a supportive and non-competitive environment in all of our classes. Perfection is never our goal in the classroom. Students should expect that their skills will improve with practice over time.
Our team of professional designers and sewists make garment sewing approachable, and it’s our goal to provide students with the confidence and the knowledge they need to continue practicing sewing at home.
Our Belief in the Power of Sewing
Through sewing we build communities, stimulate creativity, and improve women’s self-esteem and confidence by helping them to sew clothes they're excited to wear.
We work hard every day to promote a sense of accomplishment in our students and customers by reminding them of their abilities. Together we learn from each #sewingfail and celebrate every #sewingwin.
We use our shared passion for sewing to connect with those we might not meet otherwise, and we create opportunities for our students to develop relationships that go far beyond sewing itself.
