Specialty Classes

Specialty Adult Classes

Specialty Adult classes at La Movida will teach you the necessary skills to bring your design from start to finish. Our classes are open to all levels of experience, from beginners with a passion to create, to intermediate and advanced sewers that want to build on their existing design skills. Specialty classes are available year-round and are taught by industry-trained Guest instructors. The small classes will allow instructors to engage and assist with each student’s design needs.

Additional supplies may be required and will be informed by the instructor before the start of class.

Design is more than just sewing. Join us to explore and express your creative ideas!
