End-of-May Classes!

Sewing Lab
Saturday, May 30th, 1-2:30pm
Class Fee: $12
Did you get a new sewing machine or do you have one collecting dust in a corner? Do you spend more time staring at or fiddling with your sewing machine than actually putting it to use? 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 models, please). Proper maintenance and care will also be covered during this lab. In order to ensure personalized instruction, the lab is limited to 3 people, so reserve your spot quickly!

Sew Basic
Saturday, May 30th, 3-5pm
Class Fee: $15 (or take both sewing classes for only $22)
Whether you’re looking to create a fashion vision or just alter a piece that no longer fits, this is the class for you! Emily of Umbrella Girl Productions 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 learn how to alter.

Beginning Knitting
Sundays, May 31st and June 7th, 4-5:30pm
Class Fee: $25

Materials Needed: size 8 needles, 1 skein medium weight yarn
Now is the time to finally pick up some knitting needles and learn a new skill! This class is for absolute beginners---we’ll start with the basics and move on up to some serious scarf making. Seasoned knitter Adrienne of the Crafty Beavers will teach us casting-on, basic knit and purl stitches, changing colors, and casting-off. In this class we’ll make an ipod/cell phone cozie and start work on a scarf.

* 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.
