Spring is upon us and that means warm weather, picnics, hiking, and the vision of renewal!

Renewal comes in many forms - and investing in yourself hopefully is top on the list. If it is, we have a full list of classes coming up that can help you learn new patterns, skills and even get back into making your own garments!  

Garment sewing is making a comeback -- the modern patterns are a far cry from the Simplicity/McCalls patterns some of us started sewing with.  I am happy to announce that Beeth Galvin of Sunnygal Studio has joined our teaching staff.  Beth will be leading a series of classes for beginners(and rusty) sewists starting in May.  Beth also teaches online at Hello Stitch in Berkeley as well as giving private sewing lessons.  To learn more about Beth - check out her blog Sunnygalstudio

What are your kids/grandkids doing this summer? We are hosting our very first Summer Kid's Kamp?  🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
Anna will be joined by a stellar volunteer group that will have kids learning to use a sewing machine and will complete 2 projects!
Kamp dates: June 22, 23 & 24  CLICK HERE for more information.

Have a schedule that is ever changing?  Check into our daily Stitching Session passes.  You pick your three hour session and join the stitch fun.  A Daily Stitch Session pass reserves a seat for a three hour session and can be purchased for $35.  Reservations are required and are on a first come/first serve basis. We ask that you call and reserve a seat at least the day before coming to sew.   

To Mask or Not to Mask --- 
In our efforts to keep everyone as safe as possible we are continuing to ask our shoppers to wear a mask in the shop. Our staff has elected to keep masked for the near future.  Please remember that our number one priority is having everyone remaining healthy. 

We appreciate you - and you are only a stranger once here at Wooden Gate - we are a community of like minded sewists that make a difference in our communities. Remember, if you can't make it to the shop -- go to the Shop Online page!  From the bottom of our hearts we thank you!
