One-Day Project Classes!
One-Day Project Classes!
Jump into some one-day classes to keep you motivated and engaged with your sewing journey- never stop learning! These classes are adaptable to all levels! If you are a beginner who would like to try a one-day class before diving in to longer workshops, please let me know- I can accommodate beginners by preparing the machine so that you can jump right into sewing the project. Experienced Sewists will get a lot out of each of these classes- maybe you'll pick up a new skill, or get a lot of one thing made up (for instance, an experienced sewist may make several tote bags during the Tote class!).
Staff of School District 71 have an ongoing discount for adult classes (25% off using coupon code SD71), however, for classes that say materials provided, the cost includes fabric (not covered by the discount). So please us coupon code TEACH to receive 25% of the class portion of the price! If you are registering for multiple classes, please just send an email to email@example.com to clear up and confusion and to apply discount as necessary.
