We also make a lovely lined bag out of gorgeous fabric.

Some nice things said about the class by Joan of Worthing
"I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous workshop on Saturday.
I really enjoyed it and as someone who has literally never used
a sewing machine before I was amazed at what I made!!.....
thanks for being such an inspiring and enabling teacher."
