#4. Basics Workshop: buttons, zips & word stitching

Either have personalised help with a specific sewing project or, if you are a sewer already, you might want to learn how to use these skills in a more artistically expressive way. These can all be used to tell a story:

  • Sewing on a Button
  • Inserting a Zip
  • Stitching Words

    1 hour session one-on-one: $25 per hour

    #5. Zippy Roll-up Pouch OR Roll-up Game Board

    You can either make this as a handy storage bag OR (much more wacky & fun to make) design your own board game on the outside. You will need to have the skills covered in Basics Workshop (above).

    Bring your own fabric or rummage in our scrap bins.

    2 1/2 - 3 hours: $25 per hour (capped at $45 to finished product)
