And now drumroll please…..
I will be offering classes out of my home! I have been wanting to do this for a while now and I am giving it a go. I do have a sewing space set up in my basement and I have held private lessons here before, but now I am scheduling some classes in hopes of spurring some interest from my friends and sewist that have moved beyond the beginner level. These classes are for sewist that can operate and thread their machines.
Amy Butler’s Frenchy Bag –Wed, Oct 3 from 6-9pm. Cost is $36, Limit 3. This is a super cute bag that can be made in 2 sizes. It has a great shape and sew-in interfacing and a snap closure. All pattern pieces must be cut out prior to the class. Construction of the bag will be done in class.
Amy Butler’s Sweet Greeting Portfolio Covers – Mon, Oct 22 from 6-9pm. Cost is $36, Limit 3. These covers will make any old notebook or binder look very special. There are 2 sizes available and the pattern is FREE from her website! All pattern pieces must be cut out prior to class. Construction of the covers will be done in class.
Amy Butler’s Gypsy Sling Bag – Sun, Dec 2 from Noon to 3:30pm. Cost is $40, Limit 3. In this class, we will use Amy Butler’s Gypsy Sling pattern to create this wonderful bag. The bag has leather handles, many pockets and is generously sized. You will learn basic construction by following a pattern. Precutting the fabric, interface and adhering (fusible/iron-on) the interface is required prior to coming to class. Cutting the leather handles can be done in class since it requires a special leather cutting tool (provided).

I can send a paypal invoice for credit card payments or you can mail or drop off cash or a check. Your spot is secured when payment is received.

If an emergency occurs, arrangements can sometimes be made but if you are a no-show and no contact is made within 48 hours of the class, a refund cannot be given. Sorry…but I have had many last minute cancellations and I often arrange for child care for my kids in order to teach out of my home. Plus, there is sometimes a waiting list and it is not fair to those on the list. Thanks for your understanding!!
