Fabric Deals and Bargain Sewing Classes at the Scrap Exchange


I’m always telling people about the fabric deals I find at the Scrap Exchange in Durham.

Like these  pricey discontinued  decorator samples I bought for a quarter each.

Or these wonderful 60’s  and 70’s trims–hard to find and a bargain to boot.

 

Scrap Exchange sewing classes are great  bargains, too.   For example, the Basic Sewing Workshop I’m teaching  this Sunday afternoon includes:

  • Three hours of instruction plus one free studio hour with my help.
  • All materials  for a pillow or tote bag which students design after digging through the Scrap’s awesome fabric stash.
  • Solid instruction in two basic stitches (straight stitch and zigzag) which are key to making an ENDLESS number of wonderful things!
  • Supplies and tools ( including sewing machines you can use  or bring a machine from home  It will love the outing.)
  • Confidence when you sit down to sew.

All this costs only  $30–even less if you’re a Scrap Exchange member. (Go to www.scrapexchange.org to sign up. )

And the results are very cool–I love seeing my student’s designs take shape!
