learn to sew at the klum house

by Cameron

We have a steady stream of customers coming into the shop wanting to learn or improve their sewing skills, and today we have a new suggestion for all of you aspiring sewists. The Klum House is located in North Portland and offers a unique roster of classes focused on bag making. Many classes are offered on a sliding scale, so you can grow your skills with out busting your budget.

Ellie Lum, one of the founders of Klum House, is an expert bag maker, and you'll benefit from her years of experience making and selling her own line of bags. You might tackle more advanced skills like installing hard wear, working with leather, or sewing with an industrial machine; or you might just get your feet wet with a tote bag. The projects themselves are beautiful, useful, and rugged.

Check out their website to learn more about Ellie and her offerings. She has graciously shared with us a promo code for 20% off any sewing class. Enter MAKE IT as the coupon code when you're checking out. Be sure to show us your new bag next time you're in the store!
