It's In The Bag! Sew-Along

Mondays, December 7th, 14th and 21st from 7pm to 8pm

Free participation with your supplies purchase!


It's time to make something new, so we're going to sew some bags! We've got three different patterns for you to choose from, depending on your skill level, your needs, or your favorite:


Shown in the above photos is the Wool & Wax Tote by Noodlehead.


Maybe you need a project bag? Try the Stowe Bag pattern by Grainline Studio!


Or try your hand at this Crescent Tote, also by Noodlehead.


If you haven't tried one of our series Sew-Alongs yet, you can jump in at any time! They take place on Mondays at 7pm. Sewing is typically a solo hobby and we're proud to say we've made it fun to do in a virtual group. As an added bonus, you don't have to carry your sewing machine anywhere!

Stop in, email us at [email protected] or call us at 773.486.8996 and we will help you gather the supplies you'll need (we can shop with you via Facetime if that helps!):
