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. 

FRIDAY, 1:30 PM. TIE DYE  Fun with tie dye! Melissa Palomares will be presenting various dying techniques and leading this workshop. Participants need to bring their own 100% cotton, white t-shirt, tank top or long sleeved shirt to dye. All other supplies will be provided. Looking forward to the creative outcomes!
