Class: Adult/Child Sewing (ages 8+)

November 6, 2016 @ 12:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Help your young designer develop sewing skills! Adults and children (ages 8 and up) will work together to learn basic skills and complete a first project. Topics include sewing machine operation, threading, troubleshooting, tools and two basic stitches (straight stitch and zig zag). Students will design and sew either a purse or pillow from The Scrap Exchange’s awesome collection of reclaimed fabrics. Students are welcome to bring a (working) sewing machine from home. Otherwise, all machines and tools will be provided. Due to the length of the class, we encourage you to bring a snack for your child.

Registration is suggested. Space is limited.

Time: 12:30-3:30pm (3:30-4:30pm is an optional studio hour with instructor assistance)
