Have you taken a Class from Mary Ellen and have not had the chance to finish the project you started in class? Here is your chance to "finish it up!" Join Mary Ellen for this one-day-make-up class! Mary Ellen will be offering support and advice to help you finish that project that ended up on the back burner once you took it home from class and your busy life got in the way of sewing.
In this class, Mary Ellen will instruct you on how to make Nesting Clam Shell zippered Bags--beware, making these bags is addictive! Zippered pouches in five sizes are perfect for storing and carrying makeup, sewing supplies, tech gear, and more. You may quilt the fabric or leave it unquilted and add optional iron-on vinyl laminate for a wipe-clean interior. Double slide zippers and handy grab tabs make the bags easy to open wide; attached side panels prevent contents from falling out. An optional strap with swivel hook may be added. When empty, the bags nest to save space and be cute!
Tap into your creative dress designer genes and have the best-dressed-doll in town! In the "Say "Yes" to the Doll Dress Class" you will create a wardrobe for 18" dolls (American Girl Doll Size). These dresses are from Erin Hentzel's " A Dress For Every Occasion Doll Dress Boutique" book (required for class). This class is offered once a month for seven months (three is no class in May). Each month one of six dress styles will be featured. While these dresses can be made on any domestic sewing machine, in this class you will have the opportunity to learn new skills and enhance your sewing repertoire with the use of the Serger/Overlook machine as well as learning about specialized feet, decorative stitches, trim application, and other sewing skills. This is a great skill builder for all ages (teens are welcome!) and it is offered as a parent/child class.
