Classes are coming! Classes are coming!

Kids’ sewing classes will start the week of June 10th @ Cottontail Quilt Shop in Kennesaw.

Snap Happy! bags (2.5 hours)  6/28 from 1:00-3:30 p.m.
Zipper Pouches (2 hours)  6/12 from 10:00 a.m. – noon
Easy & Simple Skirts (3 hours)   6/11 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
T-Shirt Pillow Covers (3 hours)  6/20 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

These classes are designed for stitchers, ages 8-14, with some experience.  This means the student can thread the machine, wind a bobbin and stitch a straight seam without sewing her/his fingers together.  Classes are limited to no more than 4-6 students. Projects can also be tailored to meet individual student needs.

If you’re brand new to sewing, I recommend that you contact the shop at 678-355-6776 and to ask about the First Steps and Simple Stitches class.  You will learn how to operate your sewing machine and make a pillowcase by the end of the class.  Private lessons are also available during the week.

If you’re a grown-up and want to take one of these classes, please let Robin or me know!   The Easy & Simple Skirts class would be great for a mom who wants to sew for her daughter.  Paired with an appliqued t-shirt, you can have a custom look for a fraction of the retail price.  And they’re so quick and easy to make once you learn how (even faster if you have a serger).

Happy Stitching!
