Killer Slippers Just try them on and you'll see what we're talking about. They feel like you're wearing socks but they are not slippery on floors. They're made out of Sherpa fabric (fleece on one side, faux suede on the other). We'll supply the fabric. We'll have a full spectrum of sizes and will teach you how to make them in your size. Then we'll show you how to measure someone else's foot to make a pair in THEIR size! Yet another gift idea. $30.00

Make Friends with your Sewing Machine If you and your sewing machine are not on speaking terms - we'd like to help you with that. Dig it out, dust it off, bring it in and we'll re-introduce you two. We'll help you to oil it up, clean it out, find what needs fixing. If it's working properly, we'll make an Infinity scarf! Bring your machine, power cord, feet, bobbins - ALL that stuff that came with it. FREE!
The Doctor is IN! Resuscitate your sewing machine. This class will teach you how to work on your sewing machine in order to keep it running smoothly. You know how it goes - take care of your tools and they'll take care of you. Have you checked out what it costs to get your machine tuned up. YIKES! Save some money, learn to do it yourself. $45

You will find this is JUST the beginning to unleashing your creative up-cycling talents. $45

February 3 (Wednesday) 5-ish to 8, SEWcial
Come and sew with us - OK maybe we'll sew, maybe we'll just chat - it depends on what you WANT to do. There will be snacks so you don't go hungry.

Everyone needs to show off what they're making. ALL skill levels welcome. FREE!

February 5 (Friday) 6 to whenever, Downtown Bellingham Artwalk
The Textile Gallery is an important part of Social Fabric so come and see what we've got to show THIS month!
Really - we DO have a plan - of sorts. Classes we've scheduled for the first half of February will be all about Love, making it and giving it. We have several Valentine Making "workshops" which you can attend. AND, we've come up with a class you can do WITH your loved one (we're thinking parent/kiddo) or you can take a class to make something to give as a token of your love.
Then after Valentine's day - we're back to the concept of keeping warm and cozy AND we're turning up the dial on up-cycling sweaters. Take a look....
February 7 (Sunday) 1 to 4,
Zipper Bags If you're scared of putting in a zipper - THIS is the class for you. We will make three bags, each a different shape (2 of them shown here). Each will require putting in a zipper. We'll teach you an easy way to sew in a zipper. After doing that three times, you'll be a pro (OK - maybe not a pro), but you will have addressed your fear of zippers!) These are the COOLEST things for organizing your stuff OR you can make them for gifts! They don't take a lot of fabric. After this class - you'll be making zipper bags right and left! $30
