Designer Joi Sewing Holiday and Other Sewing Factory Classes

Joi’s Event Tips for Registered Guests :


  1. SELECT which events you want to attend  and start packing.  No matter what class you choose you will have an outstanding time. Take a variety of classes from  Sewlebrity teachers and guest speakers.
  2. CLASS KITS: Sponsors have provided thousands of dollars of products, samples and machines to use at no cost to you during class time. Some classes have a minimal kit fee (noted in the class description on this website) which is paid to the instructor on the day of class. This covers  class specific items that the instructor is providing in a kit and pre-cut materials.
  3. SUPPLIES: Make a note of student provided supplies listed in the class description. There are not many but these are basic sewing supplies that you will want to bring with you to each class such as scissors, pins etc . . . Some items will also be  available for sale on site.
  4. BOOK:  your hotel and make your travel arrangements ASAP and we will see YOU in JULY! Check out our travel page for all your planning needs, or email for assistance.

Common Questions:


  1. Where do I park? We have plenty of parking at the Sewing Factory. Most guests park on the street outside of the studio. It’s Free. We have extra parking in the back and a side lot as well. On busy days and special events we have permission to use parking lots at adjacent businesses.
  2. Do I bring my Sewing Machine? No, Thank you to our Sponsor Baby Lock for outfitting our classroom with beautiful new machines. No more classes hauling your heavy machines, or using old outdated hard to work machines.
  3. How much is a class? Each class and event is different. Prices are listed in the individual class descriptions.
  4. Is a payment plan available? Sometimes. If you are registering for lengthy events, or licensing a payment plan is available. Our rule is anything over $900 we will set up 1-3 payments.
  5. How do I register? It’s easy. Simply email Currently we are sending invoices from the studio rather than our automated system, but that sometimes changes. If you are ever not sure just email us and we are glad to help
  6. What do I eat for lunch? Some classes we cater in food, but we have lots of local eateries and some within walking distance. Please see class description or email if you have any questions.
  7. Where do I stay when I come from out of town? You will need to make your own hotel arrangements. Check out the travel page on the top menu of this site for ideas. We are fans of staying in the Lakeport Commons area because it is by all the great shopping and mall area as well as lots of eateries.
  8. Do I need to rent a car? If you are flying into SUX you probably don’t. Most of the hotels have shuttles and my assistant is actually an UBER driver so I have a good referral for you if you like, but check with your hotel as many will shuttle you around.
