Classes & Parties at Home Ec

As many of you know, Home Ec, our studio space on 3rd Avenue, offers a variety of sewing classes as well as being the place where we make our own clothing line "Flirt" for our boutique on 5th Avenue in Park Slope. But did you know that we also host private parties and group classes? Well then, I suggest you read on...

Recently we held a bridal-shower-quilting-party, where the bride, her family and friends got together to celebrate, hangout and make a quilt. Every guest got their own quilt square to decorate with stitches, applique, buttons and a wide variety of beautiful fabrics to choose from. You don't need any sewing experience for this party; just a lot of imagination and some festive, creative spirit!

Once the cheese plate and the wine supply disappear and everyone has completed a square for the quilt, our Home Ec seamstresses sew it all together and the bride is presented with a beautiful, one-of-a-kind masterpiece: a quilt lovingly made by her friends and family.

In other, educational news, we have been hosting groups of teens for week long sewing camps. Our students learn how to make a cotton tote bag, a custom skirt and then get to use their new found sewing knowledge to develop a small project of their own!

If you are interested in booking a private party or class, you can always email us at flirtbrooklyn(at) or give us a call: 718.852.2889.
