Beginner Sewing Machine Workshop (POSTPONED)

Hosted by POST + Donna Killeen, of Detroit Apron Co.


 

Explore the basics of machine sewing while creating a fun structural carry-all bag.

In this 2 hour, hands-on workshop get comfortable using a sewing machine to make a fully lined and reversible bento bag. Bento bags are so named because they were traditionally used in Japan to carry a single portion lunch box called a bento box. Don’t be fooled, though! These bags have a multitude of uses. Once completed you can use yours to carry groceries, wrap gifts, store goodies - whatever you like. 

Each student will leave with a completed cotton + linen bento bag, fabric marking pen, embroidery needle and floss and have been introduced to three fundamental sewing machine stitches and techniques.
