This $75 class taught by Keli Faw will run from 12pm to 3pm.
Open Studio nights – starting in December, we’ll be hosting an open studio night two Thursdays a month versus one! We’ll be popping open some bottles and setting up some tables so you can sew, bind, cut or just chat, whichever it is – it will be fun! Interested in coming by?
