I had so much fun teaching this class (and who knew I could talk so long about fabric?). 10 lovely ladies joined me for the afternoon and they each created their own unique doll – some with button joints, some out of linen, and some with ears in places that the makers weren’t expecting, but that were a delightful surprise anyway. A room full of whirring sewing machines, and creatives who are so encouraging to each other, well, doesn’t get much better!

Sew With Me!

I am happy to announce that my next class is being held on:

Sunday, May 3rd, from 1:30 – 4:30pm
At Rusty Macdonald Library (Meeting Room) in Saskatoon, SK
Cost is $65, and includes all materials

**There are only 10 spots available for this class**

To reserve a spot in the class, you can purchase a Sew With Me listing in my Etsy shop.

We will be creating this sweet little fox shown here! The natural materials for this project include Organic cotton fleece and wool stuffing (regular polyester stuffing will be available too if you prefer). These are beautiful materials that are not available locally, so this is a great chance to discover how to with them while we learn the basics of making a soft toy. The final product is baby-friendly (no small parts).

What you will need to bring:
-Your sewing machine, threaded with white or neutral colored thread
-Pins and seam ripper, if you have

Is this class for me?
If you have basic sewing knowledge and are somewhat familiar with your sewing machine, you are welcome to be part of this class. You will need to know how to use a straight stitch, backstitch (reverse), and how to thread your machine and bobbin. Your sewing machine is the main tool used in this class, and if not working properly, can be a major cause of frustration for you. Your sewing skills do not need to be top notch, but make sure your machine is in good working order. **This class is only open to adults**

What if I sign up and can’t make it?
I will refund your spot up to 2 weeks before the class. No refunds will be given after that – please check the date and time and make sure it works for you!

Looking forward to sewing with you!

This class is a great way to learn about soft toy making. We will all work our way through sewing one of these charming squirrels, covering basic skills for sewing plush creatures and getting comfortable using fleece, faux fur, and simple embroidery. This pattern is a boolah baguette original, and of course there is always room to add your own one of a kind touches to your handmade critter.
