Classes

Project classes welcome any brand of sewing or embroidery machine. When bringing your machine to class, make sure it is in good working order as we cannot interrupt the class to help with repairs. Also, bring the machine manual and accessories. It is helpful to have some notions, for example, scissors, straight pins, fabric marker, ruler or any other favorites. We cannot accommodate children or guests during classes. Refreshments brought to class should be covered.

Register early to guarantee your seat and to avoid class cancellation. Notify the store promptly if a cancellation is necessary. Class refunds cannot be made within seven days of class. However, customers are welcome to find their own class replacements.

When you register early and prepay your class, you will receive the supply list and software if needed. Software should be installed onto a stick or laptop prior to class. Payments may be made by telephone using a VISA or MASTERCARD credit card. Call Sandie, Cherl, at (559) 432-8900.

Stitch n Slash
STITCH 'N' SLASH
(a design-your-own-fabric class)
Have you ever wanted to design your own fabric? Now's the chance. You will be given step by step, hands-on instructions on combining several different fabrics into two great, new and completely original designs.
In this class you will learn:
Two completely different fabric-design techniques and then put them together as two sides of a Hobo Bag.
Which colors and fabrics work best together (and which don't work at all !!)
How to combine these fabrics in completely new ways to produce an entirely new look.
Tips on using these same designs in ways other than those shown in class.
How to create an entirely new design using the left-over scraps from the first half of the project.
Once you've learned to design your own fabric you can then make anything you like from it. These techniques work well for fabrics used in jackets, vests, handbags, totes, pillow-covers, notebook covers, quilt blocks (and whole quilts, of course) and just about anywhere you would use fabric.
This is a three-day class. The first two days you will create two different fabrics to be used in the class project, which is a Hobo Bag. The third day will be putting the bag to-together.
Come into the store a see the many samples.
This is the first in a series of fabric-design classes by Janna. Don't miss out on the op-opportunity to have clothes and accessories completely original, designed exactly the way you've always thought they should be.
