sewing @ wing & clover

i’ll be teaching a beginner sewing class in rhinebeck this weekend, at the lovely wing & clover. there are still spaces available! if you’ve been wanting to learn to sew, here’s your chance. by the end of the three class sessions, you’ll have made friends with your machine, and designed your own tote bag (like the ones above) with a lining and customized pockets. how cool is that? then you’re well on your way to making a summerful of dresses, tops, home goods, kiddy clothes or whatever your stitching heart desires. here are the details; hope to see you on saturday!
