Beginner’s Sewing: Totes!

10 June 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This beginner sewing class will cover the basics in domestic machine sewing. Participants will learn the importance of correct threading and machine settings. Then we will draft a tote bag onto cotton fabric, cut it out and sew it up in one evening. Skills learned are easily transferable to making curtains, pillow covers or hemming pants. Sewing machines, tools and fabric will be provided to all participants. If you would like to bring your personal machine that is fine, as long as it is in great shape, has a new needle, an empty bobbin and is ready to go.
