Beginning Sewing – Each month, Carolyn will teach beginning sewers new skills like inserting a zipper, sewing articles of clothing or useful items for storage and fun. Each class is $20 per session.  Selvage Bag – April 11 - Create unique and colorful fabric by using your selvages!   Selvages are the tightly woven finished edges that run the entire length of your yardage.   They often have writing, or colored circles that show all of the colors used in that fabric.  Trim your selvage strips at least 1 ½” – 2” wide so you see some of the fabric pattern.  These are sewn onto a foundation fabric, hiding all the raw edges.  The class project will be a zippered bag, but you can create any item once you create your own fabric sewn with selvages.
