WORKROOM SOCIAL

When’s the last time you submersed yourself in sewing with like minded people? Do you have a project that needs some handholding or firm deadlines? Tired of going to lunch with your sewing friends, but never sewing with them? Come and sew!!
Pack up your project and sew in the company of others. Get your sewing done and make some new friends that know what you mean when you talk about your favorite passion.
The Material Girls will be there to keep your skills up to date and help you with any other hurdles you encounter.
**This winter we are focusing on Cynthia Guffey patterns in our personal sewing (trust me, we’ll need help) so if you own one or have made it through one, these classes may be helpful or you could be helpful! We’ll all figure them out together.

FIT & SEW YOUR PERFECT TEE
