In-Person Class - Please arrive 10min early to set up
Join Candace for this month's POM (Project of the month) Each project is to help you master your serger and cover-stitch machine. 
 
Don't be afraid of bottoms!! Knit options are easy, quick, and require minimal fitting.  This will be a 2 part class. In the first class, we will talk about the pattern, take measurements, copy and edit our pattern and cut out the fabric.
In the second class, we will sew it up.

  • purchase pattern online: Select from one of these patterns: https://patternemporium.com/collections/shorts-pants-patterns-womens
