Where can I find sewing/sewing machine classes in Wilmington and how much do they cost?

Amanda Lisk


Wilmington’s Fran’s Sewing Circle dominated my Google search. They have a very easy to navigate website at www.franssewingcircle.com/classes.html.

Located in Phillips Plaza on Oleander Drive (5751 Oleander Dr Unit 5) between Dunkin’ Donuts and Dairy Queen (phone: 910-397-9399), Fran’s Sewing Circle offers a variety of every level of sewing classes using the sewing machine ranging in price from $25 to $90. For more information, email franssc@aol.com.

There’s also a Basic Sewing class listed under the continuing education department of Cape Fear Community College (910-362-7189). This class has three one-month sessions throughout the year starting in January and held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m Saturdays at the Wilmington campus, 411 N. Front St.

For free, there’s always YouTube. The Crafty Gemini is pretty popular. The “Learn to Sew Using Your Sewing Machine” video  has more than 187,000 hits.

If you know of any other local sewing classes, give us the particulars in the Comments section below.
