2 session class with Marjory

Class meets Tuesdays, April 17 and 24 from 10:30 to 1:30.

Have you been noticing all of the exquisite vintage home dec pieces in magazines and stores lately? Have you noticed the prices? Yikes!

Join Marjory for this sewing class and learn how satisfying it is to make your own vintage-look pillowcase.

This is Marjory's own design and we are so happy to be able to offer you this class.

In this class you will learn:
how to make narrow and wide pintucks,
how to shape lace,
and how to use a wing needle.

And, in case you were wondering, you don't need a fancy, expensive machine. Your machine needs to have a blanket stitch and be able to go forwards and backwards.

Marjory's pattern will make a standard/queen or king-size pillow case. After I hung them on our hangers, I realized how pretty this design would be for decorative towels, too.
