Learn to Sew! - Zippered Bags
September 25

Do you know how to use your sewing machine and want to try some new projects? In this class we will make two styles of 8” x 10” bags. These bags are lined and are great for travel, storing supplies or giving as gifts.

You will learn how to work with zippers, and we will complete 2 bags during the class. These bags are a great way to get learn how to sew with zippers. Once you understand the basics of how to make the bags you can adjust the size as you wish.

You will need know how to use a sewing machine (thread the machine, load the bobbin and how to do straight stitching). A supply list will be provided 1 week before the class date.

Sewing machines are available for rental for $5 from the instructor. Kits with all supplies (fabric, fusible fleece, zippers, and fusible seam tape) to make 4 bags (2 in class and 2 later) will be available from the instructor for $20.
