In this beginning course, we will make one book in class and you will have the option to make a second book (time permitting) or have as a "take home" version to finish with your own personal touch, such as colored thread and button closure. We will also discuss tools, terminology, various material options and alternative sewing patterns. All tools and materials will be supplied. The $55 Fee covers a $45 Class Fee and a $10 Materials Fee. Please pre-register with Mitzi Lindgren at firstname.lastname@example.org as class size is extremely limited.
