The End of an Era

If you are on the mailing list for The Urban Craft Center, you've already heard the bad news: they are closing on May 31. I am super bummed as I've made some amazing friends there! The staff, students, and owner Angharad have been so kind to me since the very beginning and they threw me the most awesome book party when it was released in 2009.

The good news is that there are still a few chances to have a class with me before they close! Read below to check out my upcoming classes. I have two sessions each of Intro to Sewing, the 3-Hour Skirt, and Garment Construction Bootcamp! So join me and get some mad skills before the doors close up for good!



3-HOUR SKIRT
Working without a pattern, we will make a quick and easy elastic-waisted skirt in a mere 3 hours! Great for beginner seamstresses looking to make their first garment.
