all-day tote class @ brooklyn general

we've developed a new class at brooklyn general, for 'advanced beginners', after finding that the true intermediate project (like the BBW tunic) could be a bit too challenging for someone who has only been sewing for 4 weeks and made one wrap skirt. so i'm happy to announce Sewing 102! we'll make the cute tote bag pictured above (at right in both pics), perfect for those who are still getting their 'sew-legs' (har!) or who haven't sewn in years and want a refresher course...

**please note: one session begins tomorrow evening (10/9) and another wednesday morning (10/10) so act fast!

Sewing 102: All-Day Tote $150
Four 2-hour classes

Step up your stitching skills with this very practical tote bag from Lotta Jansdotter's book Simple Sewing. You'll learn how to do pockets, linings, topstitching and straps and become much more confident with your sewing.

1 yard medium- to heavy-weight fabric for bag
1 yard medium-weight fabric for lining
1/2 yard of twill tape (1" wide)
thread to match
optional: quick-release metal key clip
basic sewing supplies (scissors, pins, pincushion, ruler or tape measure, tailor's chalk, seam ripper)

Session A: Tues 6:30 to 8:30 pm, 10/9, 16, 23, 30
Session B: Wed 11 am to 1 pm, 10/10, 17, 24, 31
