Sew a drawstring storage or gift bag! And in the process, learn, or re-learn, to use a sewing machine.
3 hour class—$75
Price includes all supplies.
If you are new to sewing or want a solid refresh, this is the place to start. Get comfortable using a sewing machine including sewing seams and turning corners. You’ll sew and take home a drawstring bag that is perfect for wrapping gifts or storing small items.
We will create samples of each sewing technique taught for future reference. We provide basic sewing supplies including sewing machines to use during the class. Practice proper pressing.
All supplies to make the bag from a selection of fabrics and ribbon are included. If you would like to use your own fabric, bring ½ yard of quilting cotton or other medium weight 100% cotton fabric and 2 yards of ribbon. Ribbon widths from ¼ to 1 inch wide will work for this project.
NOTE: This class is a prerequisite for the Learn to Sew Level 1 Apron class. Find these classes here.
