This month, we have a NEW teacher, Devin Connolly, and she's teaching a NEW class.  When she brought these into Social Fabric to show us this project - we said "yes please - when can you teach this!"  This is a class in how to make reversible fabric bowls!  You might have met her, she's also a new employee at Social Fabric and she's amazing talented in all kinds of sewing arts.
