Video: Why Take classes clubs and events at Blakeman's?


One-of-a-kind Sewing Curriculum for sewing enthusiasts

We have fun, inspirational sewing classes for every skill level and sewing interest. We hope you can join us for these great opportunities, learn new skills and join our community! 

Creative Classes:
The Creative Classes are taught by contract educators that we have the pleasure of working within our local communities! That means you're getting the best instruction from teachers in your area.

Standard Training Classes:
We are also proud to offer Standard Machine Training Classes at no charge for people who have purchased that style of machine from us. The Training Classes' pricing is for customers who have purchased a machine elsewhere but still need assistance. 

Clubs & Groups:
Another benefit of purchasing a machine with us is that your club programs are free when you purchase that style of machine or item from us for 12 months! Meaning, Brother Scan and Cut Club, AccuQuilt Club, Embroidery Club (with a purchase an embroidery machine from us), and all the other clubs are included! After 12 months, you can either purchase the Club as a single session Club fee or a 12 Sessions Club fee. The price of 12 Sessions Club fee is generously discounted, plus there is a guaranteed discount on products you decide to purchase in during Club meetings!

Our Education Team recruits top-notch, leading educators to create events that build confidence in your skills, inspires you about your next project and enhance your love of sewing! We bring in national and international instructors, lecturers and even Sewlebrities to your city to learn new techniques, grow existing skills and actually meet the leaders of sewing education in person. Some of our recent special events include Nicci Brazell, Ruth Barnhill, Floriani, Luana Rubin and more!

Every season, we like to share our classes in a Seasonal Catalog by location to help you plan your sewing education. Take a peek at our Fall/Winter Seasonal Catalog. Click on one of these store locations here: Boulder, CheyenneCasper or Loveland.

And, if you're ever looking for a particular type of Sewing Machine Class in the Boulder, Cheyenne or Casper Wyoming area and do not see something that would fit your needs, please call us to speak with our store instructor. We'd love to help you get started on your creative journey!
