More March Classes!

Sewing Lab
Saturday, March 21st, 1-2:30pm Class Fee: $12
Spend more time staring at your sewing machine that sewing with it? Do you need a little help figuring out all the working parts or are you just stuck on a particular project? Emily of Umbrella Girl Productions has been sewing for over a decade and can certainly help you win the battle between human and machine. She specializes in older models but can also work a basic modern model (no computerized stuff, please). In order to ensure personalized instruction, the lab is limited to 3 people, so reserve your spot quickly!

Sew Basic
Saturday, March 21st, 3-5pm Class Fee: $15 (or take both Sewing Lab and Sew Basic for only $22!)
Whether you’re looking to create a fashion vision or just fix up a piece that no longer fits, this is the class for you! Emily will be back to teach some basic hand sewing skills and demonstrate several sewing techniques to make and alter simple garments. Additionally we will talk about patterns, selecting fabrics, and sewing notions. Please bring a shirt or skirt you’d like to discuss altering.

Project Sew: Tote!
Saturday, March 28th, 1-4:30pm Class Fee: $15
Space limited to 3 students, so register early!
Introducing a new class at Wholly Craft! Geared toward the beginning sewer who's had a bit of experience with machine sewing. While making a fun and stylish tote we will learn: finishing edges without the use of a serger, adding pockets to a bag, and sewing in a zipper. Please bring your sewing machine, a light weight upholstery fabric or denim*, a 10 inch zipper, all purpose sewing thread, sewing pins, and scissors. A sample tote bag is on display at Wholly Craft along with suggested fabric samples.
* one yard of 60" fabric or 1.5 yards of 45" fabric

**Space is very limited and Advance Registration is required for all classes. To register, please email, call 447-3445, or stop by the shop during business hours and make arrangements for pre-payment of class fees.
