Event description


Experience hands-on sewing instruction with Texstyle Bags Owner & Designer, Samilia Colar. Each 2-hr session will cover a different project start to finish. Work side-by-side with friends learning how to use the sewing machine & create functional, wearable and practical sewn items for everyday use.

In each class you will learn:

- Skills for sewing machine proficiency

- How to use sewing tools & equipment

- How to work with seam allowance

- Simple hand sewing techniques

- The best use for various types of fabric

- And much, much more!

Special Notes:

- It is suggested, but not required to bring your own sewing machine if you have one so that you may become familiar with it since this is what you’ll use outside of the workshop. There will be other machines available, but supplies are limited.

- Sewing machine rental available at an additional cost prior to class. *Limited Supply*

- NO prior sewing experience required to participate.

- Class materials are included in the cost, unless otherwise mentioned. However, you may purchase Texstyle Specialty Fabric (African print sourced from Nigeria) at your choosing. And you are always welcome to bring your own fabric.

- If you are bringing your own sewing machine, be sure it's working properly before class.

- Projects include, but are not limited to: shopping tote, cushion cover, apron, clothing.

- Participants must be at least 14 years old unless attending with a parent.

- Minimum of 4 people required per class. If minimum is not met, the class will be cancelled and you will receive an email notification the night before your scheduled class. Any unused purchased classes may be used towards a future class.
