Wine Bottle Bag (1 session)
$25 + $12 Kit Fee
Tired of carrying your wine bottles around in a paper bag? Join us for a fun class and make a cool wine tote that you can use and re-use. It looks so much better than brown paper. These bags work up fast so you'll go home with a finished bag and the inspiration and know-how to make more for upcoming occasions. They make great gifts, too - filled of course!

Shower With Love (2 sessions)
$50 + materials
This one-of-a-kind tote is appliqued and embroidered all in-the-hoop - in four hoopings. The tote is also lined, so there are no exposed raw seams. Incredible! Use your sewing machine for the final stages of incorporating the lining and borders. "Shower (your) Love" with this easy to create tote. Requires 6x10" hoop or larger.
Tue, Apr 30 & May 7 (1pm-4pm)
Diva Wallet (1 session)
$25 + materials
Complete this easy-to-sew Diva Wallet in one session and go home with your new favourite wallet! Fat-quarter and scrap friendly, this handy wallet features card pockets, bill pockets and a zippered coin compartment. Increase your wallet's security by inter-lining it with RFID protector fabric. It's so easy you'll want to make one for each occasion... or as gifts, if you can bear to part with them! Try yours with specialty fabric like cork, or your own custom embellishment: embroidery, Stupendous Stitching, piecing, etc..
Fri, May 10 (9am-12pm)
Trifecta Zip Bags (1 session)
The look of a classic handbag with hardware and materials providing a modern twist! This versatile carry-all can be done in three sizes and you can customize the outside with contrast textures like Kraftex or cork with your cotton. Once you've mastered your first in class, you just "hafta" try it with upholstery fabric and make a traditional "carpetbag"...
Fri, Apr 26 (9am-12pm)
Squiffy Sling (1 session)
$25 + materials
This super little cross-body purse will be your go-to bag -- perfect for the summer! This is an easy project for all sewing levels - a great first bag project. It's one you'll want to vary and make again and again! Finished with "the perfect hardware" from our in-stock selection from Emmaline Bags, everyone will be asking where you bought it. A great project to use one of our exceptional cork fabrics as an accent.
Fri, May 17 (9am-12pm)
Ring Sling (2 session)
$50 + materials
This should have been called the pocket sling-bag: somewhere between a purse and a tote, this creation will keep your possessions securely organized, yet conveniently accessible. Four deep outside compartments will give you quick access to keys, cell phone and more, leaving room inside the main zippered pouch for your wallet and other higher-security items. Additional inside pockets (open and zippered) make sure everything you tote has a place to call home.
Sat, May 4 (9am-4pm)
