Tired of watching your sewing machine collect dust? Or maybe you've been eyeing one on Amazon but not sure how to use it? We've got a class for that! Guest host Victoria with Subversive Textiles will be in studio showing you how to create your very own wristlet clutch! You'll learn some fun techniques, like how to create the perfect seam, threading your needle until it's ready to hit the fabric, and how to make a clutch so creative and unique it'll make your biggest frenemy jealous. Bring your own machine to get re-acquainted with her (she deserves it) or reserve one of ours. Absolute beginners welcome!
What you get:
* All materials you need to create your new favorite clutch, including thread, notions, fabric, and a make-shift runway to show off your piece (AKA the space between the tables). (NOTE: If you are bringing your own machine, please ensure you bring the appropriate sized bobbin, zipper foot, and a needle for your machine)
* 3.5 hours of hands-on instruction on various sewing techniques used to create your masterpiece.
* Build-your-own mimosa bar (Bring your own bubbles!).
* A pattern and the confidence and skills to take home to re-create the magic.
