Calling all budding Sewing Bees!
This one day workshop is an introduction to sewing on a machine, and will teach you everything from threading and winding up a bobbin, sewing seams, decorative stitches, making and applying an applique motif and lots more. You will go home with a small envelope cushion cover made by your own fair hand and lots, lots more. There will also be free patterns and handouts about simple projects to keep you going. Just bring a packed lunch, and we will provide the squash and even a biscuit or two!
