The top 10 sewing classes in Toronto

Sewing classes in Toronto actually teach much more than just how to darn a sock or make a cute bralette. They teach resourcefulness, self-reliance and waste reduction, by helping communities learn how to mend and alter clothing rather than throwing it away and buying something new and expensive.

Here are my picks for the top sewing classes in Toronto.

Make Den 

There are beginner all the way up to advanced classes at this lovely studio on Sterling where you can also take private lessons if you need extra help, or if you’re already got it all figured out, rent space to work by the hour on your own.
