JULY 17 // SEWING BASICS: ZIPPER POUCHES

from 65.00

10:30A -1:30P

Join us for a hands on sewing class. Bring your portable sewing machine and learn how to sew fabric zipper pouches from scratch. This is a practical and easy project. In class, you will review the basics of setting up your machine, how to troubleshoot common sewing issues, techniques to make your project a breeze, and walk away with a finished product that you can easily replicate on your own at home.

Students will need to be familiar but not expert with their machine.

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE TO TAKE THIS CLASS

1/2 yd of fabric A (preferably a heavier weight cotton or light weight canvas)
1/2 yd of coordinating fabric B

Sewing machine needles (Universal needles labeled "90/14" or "14(90)" size should be fine for most fabrics and come in packs of 5 in most brands)
