Thank you!

Do you have a favorite shirt that you've ripped? Does the zipper on your pants not work anymore?

Instead of ditching it for a new one, learn to fix it in this hands on class all about sewing! In this class instructors Ongeleigh Underwood and Bailey Walton will take you through five basics of sewing: sewing a button, sewing a zipper, hem lines, how to fix seam rips and patching. Everyone will practice these sewing basics on scrap fabric, but participants are welcome to bring any clothes they'd like to learn how to fix. 

Supplies: Everyone needs to bring their own sewing machine with the accompanying foots. Additonal supplies will be provided.
