It will be suitable for beginner to intermediate level sewers and we will be making a sling bag, as pictured below.
The class will be $145 + materials, which will include step by step instruction with one on one help, bag pattern and a decadent afternoon tea. Oh and did I mention you’ll have a great day sewing and meet some new people! For bookings, please complete the
booking form (if you have trouble with the link please email me for a booking form) by the 26th February then email to firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation of enrolment. Upon enrolment you will receive the materials list so you can go shopping for your supplies.
Depending on which fabric you use, materials should cost approximately $30, assuming you already have scissors etc.
If you don't wish to choose your own fabric, I have a few kits with the fabric used in the photo available for $30.
Please note there are only four places available and you need to bring your own sewing machine. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me.
Here are a few comments from Elizabeth who attended the last workshop.
“I had a wonderful day, was made to feel welcome, spoilt rotten, fed beautiful food and had vast quantities of coffee, tea and cold drinks. By the end of the day I also had a new bag.”
“I will definitely do another workshop.”
I hope to see you there
Melinda, Shannon and Julia enjoying the day

I usually try to take photos of my bags in an apartment, which can be quite tricky as there are always shadows and reflections and the light is only good during a short period of the day.
If possible, I really prefer to have a model in the shot. It looks better, helps customers judge the bag size and visualise it on themselves. Unfortunately, having a model isn’t always possible, so when I can't get my hands on a friend to glam it up for me, I need a plan-B.
I found instructions for a DIY product light-box on the internet. It took me about an hour to put this baby together.
I used foam board from Riot Art, baking paper, two bedside lamps and an extra spotlight from Bunnings. Be careful with the spotlight as it gets really hot very fast! You can get the light-box instructions here.
You can see the results using the light box on the bag below. For more examples click the Flickr slide show on the right.
