I’m teaching a class at Makeshift Society!

I’m teaching another class at Makeshift Society in San Francisco. This one is Learn to Make a Drawstring Gift Bag, and it’s taking place on Tues., December 16, 6:30 to 9 pm. This class was taking place in November and then got rescheduled. This is a repost – so if this looks familiar, that’s why!

The class is for all skill levels. If you don’t know how to sew, you’ll learn the back stitch, a handy stitch to know (you can use it to repair seams and embroider a design), and make a small bag. And if you do sew, this is a good class to brush up on your hand sewing skills and make something fun that you can use.

The fee for this class is $30, plus a $5 materials fee. Everyone will receive materials to make two small bags – ranging in size from 4 inches by 6 inches to 6 inches by 10 inches. The class is limited to 8 people so there will be time for one-on-one instruction.

Here’s a sampling of some of the fabric I’m preparing for the class – everything from bright prints

to stripes and polka dots

and other designs.

Something for everyone!

And I picked out a few different cords for the drawstring bags.
