For the first 6 months (June-November 2016), we'll be working on bags designed by Sara Lawson (sewsweetness.com). The patterns can be found in her books "Windy City Bags" and her latest offering, "Big City Bags."

Why Sara? Because her patterns are well-written, easy to follow, fun to do, and both books offer you a wealth of knowledge you can use with other patterns. Not to mention, she's a local girl!

Daytime and evening classes are available - you pick whichever works best for your schedule.
