Sewing Workshop Open House


Last month we hosted two workshops in one week! At the beginning of the week we held our first-ever Fractured Jacket workshop where participants created a reverse applique Chicago Jacket. At the end of the week we held a Berwick St. Tunic class, where we saw some fun variations on our newest pattern. To mark the occasion, we decided to host another first: a Sewing Workshop Open House!
