Notes from Cyndi

Please ensure your sewing machine is in good working order and you are familiar with it, always bring your owners manual just in case :)
You’ll also need a basic sewing kit. Our classroom is well stocked with rulers, cutting mats and irons for your use, but you’ll need to bring your own cutters, scissors, pins and extra hand and sewing machine needles. These items are all available for sale in the store.
