Frequently Asked Questions

Do you recommend a certain sewing machine?

There are many fine brands and models to choose from. I really don't have a concrete answer. Online reviews can be daunting, but very helpful. Just don't go too cheap. Many of the lowest end models do not come with useful features like variable zigzag width or stitch length. I recommend beginners get a machine that retails around $200, but buy it on sale. I DO NOT recommend buying a "kids" machine. In my experience, they are cheaply made and poorly designed. 


Mechanical vs. Computerized? I like them both, although computerized machines, even entry level ones, offer automated features that make sewing easier for those who don't use their machine often and may forget some of the basic steps.


Going to a dealer to try out machines is a good way to test drive them and get a feel for what you might like. I recommend A-1 Sewing Machine Co. in Tucker, GA. Family owned and in business since 1961, they have a large variety of new and refurbished sewing machines. There's something for every budget and the customer service can't be beat. Please tell them Easy Going Sewing sent you!

What are your payment and refund policies?

All payments are due on or before the first day of class or camp unless otherwise stated. There are no refunds for suspension from the program. Easy Going Sewing has the right to suspend services due to lack of payment.


Notifications of withdrawal should be made in writing via email to: 

within 48 hours of class to obtain full refund. 

A full refund will be granted if a class participant cancels within 48 hours of the start of the class. There are no refunds for missed class days due to illness or vacation. In cases of unavoidable missed class we will do our best to offer a makeup option.

Summer Camp Refund Policy:

A $75 registration fee is included in the price of the camp. This fee is refundable up to two weeks before the start date of the camp. Full refunds will be given to those who cancel registration two weeks before the start of camp. After that, the $75 registration fee will be retained (unless we are able to fill the spot) and the remaining registration fees will be refunded. There are no refunds or make-up days for missed camp days due to illness or vacation.

Do all of the kids make the same things in your kid's classes?

No. Beginners work from a project list that I've created to teach basic skills. Kids must do a set number of these curated projects before moving on to commercial sewing patterns, but I try to give them as much freedom as I can.
