Machine Sewing

This machine sewing class is for advanced beginners who want to learn how to insert a zipper while making a really useful item: a cord keeper for your laptop or travel bag! You’ll bring your own fabric and matching 7-inch zipper so you can make your keeper as fun and colorful as you’d like.

Your instructor, Andrea Verley, will take you step-by-step, using our sanitized sewing machines (or feel free to bring your own!). This is a great little project that you can repeat again and again at home for gift giving or selling at craft shows.
