Our March "Stitch and Bitch" Sewing Classes have just been announced.
March 11th, 18th, 25th from 6-9pm (each night)
Each student will come for all three nights, mingle with new people and learn exciting new sewing and craft skills.
For this project we are turning our hands to embroidery using a new technique making it super simple and fun. We can make a wall hanging on an embroidery hoop or turn it into a pillow or bag, depending on your preference and skillset.
No experience necessary, just bring some beer or vino (if you wish), an open mind and you will have a great time.
All skills will be taught and all materials / equipment is provided. So all you have to do is show up!
