Welcome to A Common Thread, Portland's finest creative sewing center!

At A Common Thread, we love sewing!
Our goal is to support the craft of sewing in all its many forms. So, whether you want to learn how to sew garments, make a quilt, or create beautiful machine embroidery, we are here to help.

We've got classes for every skill level and interest.  New to sewing?  Start with a Learn to Sew class, then move on to the School of Sewing Series to expand your skills.  Once you have some confidence, check out the projects from the Noodlehead Series.

Have that fancy machine and want to know what you can do with it?  Why not try the Embroidery for Quilters class?  You'll be amazing at how many quilting techniques can be done with an embroidery module.  And then there's the Heart of America class where you'll learn to make this beautiful machine embroidered wall hanging.

Join us each month for the fun and informational You Can Do This!  Each month we'll have tips, tricks, techniques, information to help you in your creative journey.  FREE!

For more information about any of these classes, check our class listings.  Call the store to register.

A Common Thread
A Common Thread is thrilled to partner with My New Red Shoes, a charity that provides new shoes to homeless and low income students. We are pleased to open our classroom to volunteers who will be sewing simple bags for the shoes to go in. We will be taking donations of 100% cotton fabric in prints suitable for students and completed bags.  Come into the store to get the specifics if you or your group would like to sew up some bags. For more information on this wonderful volunteer charity, go to www.mynewredshoes.org
The third Tuesday of each month, 10:00am to 12:00pm.  Just bring your machine and a heart to sew.
