Learn how to sew! This easy workshop for beginners is a DIY sewing adventure! No Experience required. Really! Zip, zero, none! 

This virtual Beginner Sewing Series was created especially for our friends at The J in Scottsdale Arizona, and will take place on Zoom. Anyone from anywhere is welcome to participate, however, please note that pricing is different for JCC members and non-members, and the Monday class times are set to work well for those living in the Mountain Standard Zone and might be a little late in the evening for those in CST or EST 

Instructor Mary Perisho, of Mary Make & Do in Tulsa, Oklahoma, designed this series to introduce you to a variety of basic sewing skills, and help you become familiar and comfortable with a sewing machine, sewing terms, tools and helpful tricks. Mary likes to make learning to sew as simple and friendly as possible. You do not have to have any sewing knowledge or experience to sign up, you just need a sewing machine!

When you sign up, Owl & Drum Fabric Shop will mail you the three beautiful linen fabrics shown in the photos, along with a spool of coordinating thread, which you will use to make three skill building projects over the course of three weeks. These useful projects that are easy to duplicate on your own later on, and make great gifts!
