Previous experience with a sewing machine is required. If you've never sewn on a machine before, we recommend our beginner class or a beginner sewing lesson. In this workshop, you will receive direct instruction and work at your own pace. You may bring your own machine or use one of ours. We will meet for 3 hours. If you need additional time or help with the project, you may add on private sessions as needed. Please note there are NO make-up sessions and this workshop is non-refundable.
