This is an adult and child class, much like a mommy and me, but open to all grown ups who want to learn how to sew with their child, or niece or nephew or neighbor. Children must be 6 years or older to attend.
The class is a beginning sewing project that results in 1 ready-to-use pillowcase for each participant. It introduces participants to sewing on the machine and teaches simple straight sewing. A take-home sheet will help you continue to make pillowcases at home from the fabric you prefer.
