Come learn to sew and come out of class with a finished project! These classes are great for beginners, intermediates or people of any ability just wanting a night out to sew! Feel free to sign up for all four dates or pick and choose a project you would prefer to do. And please sign up with a friend! Ages 12 and up welcome. Chocolate will be provided.
Totes, Purses, and Bags!
Come make a bag, tote, or purse in this class. Students will either design their own or choose one of several patterns available. This is a great project to adapt to all levels. Please bring; sewing machine, scissors, and one yard each of two coordinating fabrics (quilting cotton for lining and either quilting cotton or decor weight cotton for main fabric) and coordinating thread. Students are also welcome to bring a decorative button or magnet for a purse closure. It is recommended that students also bring a rotary cutter, mat, and quilting ruler to class. (Instructor will have extra just in case)

I grew up wearing handmade clothes by my grandmother. I was always in awe of her skill and talent and wanted to make sure that these skills were not lost. I love the mix of creativity and precision that sewing requires while at the same time creating something beautiful and useful! Teaching sewing to others combines my love of teaching with my love of sewing.
Along with teaching at MMU After Dark for several sessions, I have previously had a small boutique children's clothing business on Etsy, local shops and at holiday and farmers markets. I love to sew gifts, bags, quilts and home decor.
