About the Event
Have you always wanted to learn how to sew but aren't sure where to start? Or maybe you've had some experience with a sewing machine, but need a refresher? This is the class for you! We will teach you everything you need to know in order to take our Beginner (102) classes.
In this class, we will be making lined canvas tote bags.

-How to use a basic pattern
-How to cut "on the grain"
-How to make a tote bag
Skill level: ✂️
You've seen a sewing machine before, but you've never played with one, or if you have given it a try, you'd really love a little extra help to make sure you're doing it correctly.
Supply List: Supply List: We will provide canvas for the outside as well as the webbing straps. You need 2/3 yards of cotton fabric for the lining (quilting cotton weight works best). You can purchase this fabric at Hello Stitch on the night of your class if you like! More details in the supply list you will get after registration.
* If you are bringing your own sewing machine to work on, you will need to understand how to use it. We will do our best to point out features of your machine, but we will not have time in this class to show you everything you might need to know or to troubleshoot problems. You are welcome to reserve one of our classroom machines at no additional cost, or we recommend that you take a Love Your Sewing Machine class first if you’re unfamiliar with your own machine.
