Special Event! Husqvarna Make & Take Day

Pillowcase, oven door hanger and needle keeper

 Join us Wednesday, May 2nd for three fun and interesting classes with special guest Marcelle Dos Santos. From 10am - 12 noon, learn heirloom sewing on a beautifully trimmed pillowcase - learn to use a pin-tuck foot and other twin-needle stitches. From 1pm - 3pm, you can free-motion stitch a handy oven-door hanger, and from 4pm - 6pm, make the cute and useful needle keeper, trying some alphabet stitches and a binding foot.

Each class is only 70dhs, and includes all materials. And the best news -- you don't have to bring a sewing machine! We will have a variety of Husqvarna Viking sewing machines all set up and ready to use. If you already have a Husqvarna, you can bring it along if you'd like to try the new feet out on your own machine.

Space is limited and classes are only happening on May 2nd, so don't miss this chance -- Take one class or take them all! Register in Craft Land now.

Marcelle will be visiting us from South Africa
