Passionate Learning with Needles and Knots Sewing & Design Lab

Fabrics That Go has partnered with locally owned, Needles and Knots (NAK) Sewing & Design Lab, to accommodate customers interested in sewing classes. Conveniently located just up the street from Fabrics That Go, their students come into our store to feast their eyes on the seemingly endless supply of fabric. With over 15,000 bolts of fabric in-stock, plus tassel, buttons & more- customers are sure to find the perfect supplies for their sewing project.

Location: 1735 East Fort Lowell Road, Suite 8 Tucson, AZ 85719

A love for sewing and a passion for fashion and design led to the creation of Needles and Knots (NAK) Sewing & Design Lab in 2019. Led by Shauna Smith, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, it is a place to teach sewing basics and fashion design backed by her 20 years of experience.

NAK provides Tucson, Arizona with group lessons or private lessons. While specializing in apparel, they offer a range of projects accommodating various sewing skill levels. You can start with the basics of sewing but if you want something more intermediate, there are also other lessons available for you. The area where NAK holds its lessons doubles as an open studio with natural light and big windows. You get access to the equipment, including sewing machines, sergers and an enormous cutting table.

Sign up for NAK’s Fundamentals Package, and includes two three-hour classes and one two-hour hand-sewing workshop. Visit for more information on upcoming classes & costs.
