This class is held at Sew-Op + Maker Space in Vancouver, WA, across the Columbia River from Portland, OR.

For Portlanders who don’t often cross the river, it’s easy. Traveling north on I-5, take Mill Plain exit toward Port of Vancouver, stay in the left lane. (The far left lane is not Mill Plain.) Turn left at light and move to the right lane. You are now on 15th Street. Turn right on Broadway. Sew-Op is in the green building on right—the first building you come to.

There is 2-hour free street parking in front of Sew-Op and extended parking four blocks east. For closer parking download the convenient Parking Kitty app. Use this City of Vancouver Parking Map to find more parking locations.
