Sewing Basics: Zipper Pouches
Join Atelier owner Heather River for this hands-on sewing workshop. Students will use their own sewing machine to learn how to sew fabric zipper pouches. Zipper pouches are a fun, practical and easy sewing project. In class, students will review the basics of setting up their machines, how to troubleshoot common sewing issues, techniques to make your project a success, and walk away with a finished product that you can easily replicate on your own at home.
Students will need to be familiar but not expert with their machine and have taken Sewing Basics with us.
YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE TO TAKE THIS CLASS

1/2 yd of coordinating fabric B
1 spool of Multipurpose thread to match your fabric
