12 days of Christmas

Weekdays in December from 11-1 and 1-3pm we will host workshops to create fun, easy, and thoughtful handmade gifts.  $25 includes materials, instruction, and machine use.  Space is limited, so make your reservation as soon as possible!  Basic sewing instructions will not be covered - consider taking our Sewing Machine Basics class if you are a new sewist.  Students receive a 10% discount on materials purchased during class, so stock up to make extras!

Thursday December 1: Pillowcases:  Learn to make a standard-sized pillow case using the “hot dog” method.  

Friday December 2:  Pot holder Set.  Who doesn’t love a fun and funky oven mitt and potholder?

Tuesday December 6:  2-sided zipper pouch.  This fun spin on the classic zippered pouch has too many uses to count!

Wednesday December 7:  Lanyards are a great way to keep track of your keys, display a work badge, or even keep lip balm handy in the dry weather.  Teachers especially love our reversible version.

Thursday December 8:  The ruffley Key Fob is a fun and oh-so-functional way to wrangle your keys.  I’d never be able to find them at the bottom of my purse without it!

Friday December 9:  Cloth Napkins:  Learn to put a beautifully finished mitered corner on these earth-friendly reusable napkins.  Stock up on different prints for an everyday look or to spice up the holiday table. These make a great hostess gift!

Tuesday December 13:  Sleep masks are a necessity for the traveler or sleep-diva in your life.

Wednesday December 14:  (1-3pm session only). Speaking of gifts for the traveler, why not give a one-of-a-kind luggage tag and bag-flag set to help the jet-setter identify their suitcase?

Thursday December 15:  You’ll be bringing a bottle of wine to your neighbors and coworkers anyway, why not make it extra thoughtful and unique with a handmade wine tote?  You’ll definitely want a few of these on hand as last minute gifts.

Friday December 16:  And for the beer enthusiast?  Koozies!  Keep your bottled beverage cold with style. We haven't forgotten the coffee or tea lover.  Make a mug sleeve to keep the heat in the drink and off of your hand.  They’re unique, they’re Eco-friendly, and they’re functional.  Pair it with a mug and you’ve got a great gift!

Tuesday December 20:  Microwavable bowl pot holder

Wednesday December 21:  All of your gift shopping is done by now, right? (Wink, Wink).  Let's make a reusable fabric gift bag.  I always reuse gift bags - this will be the gift that keeps on giving, year after year.
