Event Overview

In this class, you’ll learn the advanced sewing techniques listed below, building on what you learned in Sewing 101.

You’ll make a sample for each new technique to add to your sewing binder with notes on how you made it. You’ll also use each technique on a fancy tote bag project, so when you’re through you’ll have both references to look back through, and a demonstrations of the techiques that you’ve done yourself.

If you haven’t taken 101, you can still take the class, but you need to be able to confidently operate a sewing machine and create basic seams to attend.
