Day Rate: $60, Includes 3 meals
FRIDAY, 1:30 PM. BAG SEWING Make a 10x13 and/or a 8x10 bag with Ellen Stenton. She will also show how to make a wet bag. All three are great for travel. Participant will need to bring a zipper for each bag they want to make and approximately 2/3 yard of fabric for outside of bag and another 2/3 yard for lining. If participant wants to put shape flex on the fabric, it helps to "beef" it up. This amount of fabric is enough for both bags. If you want to make a wet bag as well, an additional 1/3 yard of fabric and 1/2 yard of PUL fabric are needed. Ellen will provide the clear vinyl. Participants will also need to bring their own machine.
You're certainly welcome to spend the entire weekend working on your own project. For those looking for variety or to learn something new, however, we offer workshops free of charge.
When you register, please indicate which workshop(s) you will be attending, as each one has a limited number of seats available. You're welcome to participate in as many as 4 workshops. (You choose 1 workshop per time slot.)
