Paula's Sewing School​


Paula Hardin is a Home Economist that has been teaching sewing in the New Orleans area (and beyond) since 1969. She has taught thousands of teens and adults how to sew. Classes are offered for beginners, all the way to the most daring.

Over the years, she has had affiliations with JoAnne Fabrics (formerly Cloth World), Hancock Fabrics and now Hobby Lobby. Many wonderful instructors have been added to the team over the years to keep up with the demand.

Offering many different classes from KIDS & TEENS CAN SEW for the youngest beginners, to ADULT SIT-N-SEW for all skill levels, and SERGER WORKSHOPS. HOME DECORATING and QUILTING classes are always a favorite, along with many handiwork classes. Students provide their own sewing machine or they can borrow a machine to use during class. Students also provide their own basic sewing supplies including scissors, tape measure, pins & pin cushion, sewing gauge, and seam ripper.

It's never too late to learn to sew!

If you have any questions, call Paula at (504) 884-9627 or email at

Hope to see you in a class soon!
