Sew Simple and Open Sewing Classes are taught at the same time by Michelle. You will learn and have fun creating with a sewing machine. Ages 8 to 100+, machine rental available.

This class is sew simple but it is packed with so much more!! Each student works at their own pace and on their own project. Projects options are as follows: lap quilt, 15 square patchwork quilt, simple pants/shorts, pillowcase, drawstring tote bag, reversible apron, masks, book cover, 8" or 15" stuffed bear, zipper pencil bag, and so much more.

Please bring your supply's and materials to all classes. (see Documents for supply list).
