sewing 101: learn to sew!

In this 2-1/2 hour workshop you will learn all the basics of the timeless craft of sewing on our machines.   You'll learn to how to wind a bobbin and thread the machine.  Finally, you'll put your new skills to use and make a lined drawstring bag!

This class is perfect for anyone who has little to no sewing experience as well as those who have not sewn for years and need a good refresher.

Fabrics must be purchased in our shop to ensure you have the appropriate materials for the project. 

Students will need to provide the following materials:

- "It's a Cinch"  Drawstring Bag Pattern 

 - (2) coordinating fabrics for the drawstring bag (one for outside of bag, one for lining).  Each needs to be at least 18" x 22" (fat quarters work great). We have a wide selection of fabrics in our shop.

- 1-1/2 yards of 1/2" wide twill tape, available here

 - (1) spool of coordinating thread (100% cotton)

Please arrive on time for class with your materials.  Students arriving late WILL NOT be permitted in the class.  If shopping for materials on the day of class, please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
