Basic Sewing & Alterations Classes at The Arts Center Carrboro

I'm back and sharing my skills at The Arts Center Carrboro! Though I have been absent from posting to my website, and no longer offering alterations services full time, I have been sewing up a storm for and coming up with more ways to share my sewing skills with the public. This winter and spring I will be offering courses through the Arts Center's Artschool program for teens and adults. One of the classes, Collage your Clothes, focuses on creative re-use and hand sewing techniques. In this 2.5 hour class, students will learn how to applique tee shirt graphics onto other pieces of clothing and hand sewing techniques to secure and decorate them. The second class I am offering is Beginner's Sewing and Basic Alterations. This 6 week class introduces students to the use of a sewing machine and techniques for hemming, mending, and taking in garments. Both classes begin February 24, 2024 and you can still register.

Thanks for the Memories

Last year our lives as a country changed dramatically in so many ways. I personally had dramatic changes that altered my life for the time being. One such change was losing my business location and being unable to run my business from home due to the pandemic. It is with a heavy and hopeful heart that I announce, Rachel Moon's Alterations and Sewing Shop has closed its location in Durham. I am turning my motivation and energy towards my tarot business and finding new career opportunities that will further enrich my life experience and which I hope enrich the lives of others as well. Thank you all so much for your support through the years of this business in Durham and in Flagstaff. I am deeply grateful for being given the opportunity to serve you all and make your clothes and special event garments even more special for you!
