BASIC SEWING with Cecily
Mondays 6-9pm

Basic Sewing is an ongoing class that meets on Monday nights from 6 to 9 pm. It's a class for beginners just learning to use a sewing machine or for intermediates who just need a little help with a project. Some students will be working on clothing, some on home decor (pillows, curtains, etc.) and some on quilting projects. We will often have a couple of beginners along with some students who just want a little help deciphering those confusing directions and a few students who just enjoy being able to work on a project in a fun atmosphere. It's a little different mix every week but always entertaining education.

Class Fee: $85 if paid in full or $20 per class (5 classes)
