This class is a chance for the absolute beginner to dive in, learn to navigate a sewing machine and come out with a useful finished product in 3 hours. We’ll create a half apron with waist ties and a double pocket, no pattern needed! This apron is great for servers, cooks, and crafty people of all kinds.
In this class students will learn:
