You will learn all about the latest things that
are available in the sewing world and the
things you can do. You will make a simple
pillow project. This is a great class for the
beginner as well as that person who has been
out of the sewing world for some time and

This class is a prerequisite to all other sewing
classes. If you do not have a machine we will
provide one for you to use in class.
Lynn has come up with a great project that
will focus on quilting your fabric, creating

carry a small sewing machine and will
comply with airline carryon baggage limits.
