Sew as you go: Sewing teacher Tish Gance created Sewbago, a mobile version of her studio HISS (a former Best of Denver winner), and now she’s taken her show entirely on the road, bringing couture directly to private parties or parking lots and street corners all over the metro area. Gance’s classic ’72 Winnebago Chieftain is equipped with sewing machines (you can also bring your own) and space to accommodate three students at a time; Classes include basics such as Intro to Sewing and the Doomsday Class, where you’ll learn how to sew a button, mend a hem, and other skills needed to get through the zombie apocalypse. Course registration closes 24 hours before each course; visit the website for more information.

Update: Sewbago is now closed. The store posted the following on its web page:

To all of our students, friends, supporters and family who gave us the courage to be the first mobile sewing studio in Denver! Unfortunately, we have not received enough course registrations to support Sewbago, and we will be resuming classes in a brick and mortar location.

It was a BIG race and many wonderful memories were made with the Sewbago. The past year and a half will forever remain in our hearts as a fun and exciting adventure, we hope you join us for the next chapter at HISS Studio in our new location in Lowry.

Ink Lounge, a working screen printing studio run by pros Stu and Nicky Alden, encourages teamwork for a few hours of messy fun that leaves you with up to eight shirts (or tea towels, tote bags, pillow cases). Or other). Workshops are suitable for all age groups, as well as parties or private lessons, and you come home with something that you will use over and over again.
