This is a great way to meet new people that sew. You can come and go as you please. You bring your own sewing machine, project and the general sewing supplies you will need for your project. There is NO Teacher. Participants help each other and the staff can answer questions or help when possible. The goal is to make new sewing friends, and share or get expertise from other sewers. The classrooms have cutting tables, rotary mats and irons for your use.
