Bags are one of the most practical and enjoyable items to make. Learn to make one for yourself then replicate for all your friends! This is an introductory workshop for beginner and intermediate sewers. The workshop combines the key elements of following a pattern and using a sewing machine. It is pitched at beginners and those who want to improve their sewing skills.

Everything is provided for you to leave the workshop with a finished bag made from vintage fabric. The class is taught by me, Sarah Richards. Click here to read about my sewing journey. It is a small class with only 4 participants giving you chance for 1:1 tuition.
