Do you ever wish you knew what to do with all of the beautiful fabric at Beetle and Fred? START HERE!!! In this class, you'll learn how to thread and operate a sewing machine, and leave with a handy drawstring bag you'll be proud to say you made yourself! Designed for first-time sewers, this is also a good class anyone who hasn't sat down at a machine since middle school. Trust us, it's like riding a bicycle...

Fee includes materials.
