Loved the All The Basics Sewing Class and want to take your sewing skills to the next level? This class is for you.
This sewing class is perfect for you if you have sewn a little already, made a few simple things and are familiar with the basics of your sewing machine. You can thread a sewing machine hold a seam line, sew around corners. Don’t worry, we’ll do a little refresher of that.
If that all sounds like someone said “Please eject the bobbinator from the main machine” then join us for one of our introductory sewing courses first:
The Market Bag
It’s just getting into this time of year where the weather is just perfect to go to the local markets. A lovely morning spent strolling along stalls packed with local fresh produce and handcrafted goodies, while sipping a beautiful hot coffee.
To make the next market visit perfect, take your own beautiful market bag with you.
The bag is large enough to fit a good amount of groceries but small enough to be comfortably carried around all morning. It has a strap and hook for your keys, so you don’t have to empty the whole bag in front your house door to find them. The bag also has a zippered inside pocket to carry your phone or wallet safely.
