Open Studio with Maria
Monday, June 3rd, 6:30-8:30pm

Need help with a project you are working on? Would you rather sew in a social setting than alone at home? For our open studio series, fashion designer and Community sewing teacher Maria-Teresa Pena is offering her expertise and experience to support you in completing a project, and to guide you through when you get stuck.

The total price for Open Studio is $20 (Our online store format does not allow us to turn off sales tax for individual listings, so we have to take off the automatically added tax for the listing price). Supplies are not included in the price of the course. You are responsible for bringing your own sewing machine and supplies. Please make sure your sewing machine is in working order, since we do not have machines for rent.

Basic sewing skills and sewing machine knowledge is required. (If you don't have any sewing experience, we recommend signing up for one of our Beginners Sewing Courses.)

Please read the full description and confirm the date before signing up for Open Studio. In the event that you must cancel, we accept cancellations up to one week before the date of the class and you will receive a refund of the payment. After this time, you forfeit the cost of the class.
