If you are looking for a sewing project that will allow you to practice and build on your beginner sewing skills, this is it!

Build your sewing confidence and make a fully lined, one-of-a-kind, reusable tote bag! This workshop is designed for high-beginner, low- intermediate skill levels and is a great follow-up to our Basic Learn to Sew workshop reinforcing important skills you've just learned. This classic style market tote is also the perfect stepping stone to bags, accessories, and even garment assembly. Pattern template provided.

Practice & Learn

We will review threading and sewing machine set-up, cutting, pinning, setting & following your seam allowance, edge stitching, backstitching & more! Leave the class with a minimal, yet stylish re-usable tote perfect for trips to the market, weekend outings, sew & craft dates...
