Hand Sewing Circle

(Ages 9+)

Moderator: Trena Gonzalez & Kutrena Overturf

A time for sewing students of all levels to bring their projects and sew together. Projects can be any hand sewing or crafting project you are working on at home that can easily be moved to class and back home again. This is not an instructional class, but I will be on hand if anyone has questions or gets stuck. My goal for the class is to provide a peaceful space to sew with friends and learn together. This is open to students 9 to adult. Younger students by teacher approval.

Prerequisite: students must have a project already ready to bring with them..

Bezalel Registration Fee: No fee
