A sewing class for tea drinkers and morning people!

Advanced registration required; space is limited.
Registration deadline: Saturday, July 21st
Have you always wanted to sew, but aren’t sure where to start? This is the class for you. Dust off that sewing machine and make a tote bag!
In between sips of tea, you’ll learn how to:
— Thread your sewing machine.
— Cut fabric accurately.
— Sew straight and zigzag stitches.
— Understand seam allowances.
— Pin fabric together.
— Tackle sewing projects on your own!
You’ll leave with a sturdy, fashionable tote bag. Get a basic intro to sewing while gaining the confidence to go forth and sew all the things.
We’ll provide fabric and thread, but bring your own sewing machine and the instruction manual.
(If you’d like to buy a quality starter machine without laying down too much cash, I recommend Janome 2212.)
These supplies will be provided, but if you’d like to pick out your own fabric, please come with:
— 1/2 yard of cotton canvas
— 2 yards of 1-inch thick cotton twill tape or webbing
— Matching all-purpose polyester thread
