Interested in some cool fashion trends? Learn sewing vocabulary, thread a machine, wind a bobbin and learn simple patterns. Paige will help out beginners, but those who have some sewing experience are welcome too! Everyone walks away with handmade unique accessories and wearables to show off! We’ll also create some no-sew projects including cutting t-shirt designs and embellishing fabric with bleach pens.

**We encourage you to bring your own machine because that is the best way to learn and be able to sew at home! If you do not have a machine, we have a few at the studio to use. Please make sure your machine is tuned up before class. Intown Quilters offers these services at a reasonable cost.**
