Bag Making


If you are loving all the amazing bag patterns out there but need some guidance through the complex details then you will want to join us in this bag making series.  The best part, you choose the pattern!  We have 4 suggested patterns to choose from, but if you really have your heart set on something in particular, just run it by us before signing up, chances are it will be fine!  Class runs for 4 weeks at a total of 10 hours, but depending on which pattern you choose and your skills and speed, the amount of work accomplished will vary.  So be prepared for the possibility of a little homework outside of class, or for others you might finish early and want to make a little zippy pouch to match from your scraps or even start on a second bag!
