Join us for an online bag making workshop with artist Sandra Johnson. We have been having a great time working with Sandra via online classes this summer. Her work is amazing and her optimism and spirit are infectious! In this workshop, she will show you how to create your own one-of-a-kind quilted tote. She will share her tips and tricks that will make bag making your new favorite thing to do!

Make a bag that will have people stopping you on the street and asking you where you got it! For this workshop, Sandra has developed a bag pattern that can incorporate sashiko-stitched pieces from her previous workshops, or your kit will include a "cheater" print that mimics the look of sashiko stitching. (You could even stitch on top of the print to add interest!) The bag featured on the left is made with the cheater print. The bag on the right is made with a sashiko stenciled piece.
