Sewing 201: Don't Fear the Zipper!

In this 2.5 hour workshop you'll learn how to sew a professional looking lined zipper pouch.

We'll go over techniques to ensure a high quality finished product. We'll cover how to get nice neat corners that aren't pinched, beautiful top stitching to give your project a professional look, and how to make the best use of your zipper foot.

Students will choose from our selection of fat quarters for their project. We'll use 9" molded zippers for a more modern look.

At the end of class you'll take home a completed zipper pouch and a handout with detailed photos and instructions so that you can continue making zip pouches at home!
