The "LEARN TO SEW IN A DAY" series
By popular demand, LEARN TO SEW IN A DAY is back! This is the perfect workshop for all you super busy people who've always wanted to learn to sew, but just can't find the time for a long class. Or, for those who are brand new to sewing on a machine. Or, for those who just need a confidence-building, hand-holding refresher. It’s also a great stepping-stone for one of our other class offerings.
This project-based, one-time four-hour beginner sewing class teaches you sewing basics and will have you threading a machine, loading a bobbin and sewing straight or curved seams, in no time. You'll receive careful explanations and step-by-step instructions to assemble your project. And in four short hours later...you’ll walk out the door with a bag or a skirt made by you, in a day (1/2 a day, really!) Classes are small, so register as soon as possible and in advance, 'cause once it's full, it's full!
