This class is limited to 6 people in person so make sure to sign up early! The studio is spaced out so that social distancing is followed. You must follow all regulations by wearing a face mask at all time and using hand sanitizer and keeping your space wiped down. Everyone will have a special station with a sewing machine and a serger. 

Virtual students will need to supply their own sewing space and sewing machine. Along with fabric and small notions. The cost of class is discounted to reflect this. If you have a serger that would be awesome! If you do not that is ok and you can zig zag or over cast when the serger is used.

* No refunds on classes. You can reschedule or choose another date to start but we keep the classes super small and can not offer refunds.
