Description

You don’t need a sewing machine to sew!

“Be ready to run away at a moment’s notice with this handy little bag. Toss in your knitting, a change of underwear and a toothbrush. Cinch the ties to your belt or to the end of a stick. Make one for a friend, so you can run away together.” – Ellen Mason, pattern designer

This 3 hours hand sewing workshop is perfect for you if you love the idea of sewing your own things but don’t feel quite ready to invest in a sewing machine.

During this sewcial workshop Martina will show you how to read the pattern, teach you basic hand sewing stitches and guide you through the project.
You will get a piece of cloth to practice a running stitch, back stitch and a ladder stitch before you move on to sew the Runaway Bag.

We will provide all tools needed. You will receive the original pattern and Martina will prepare a gorgeous fabric collection of leading contemporary fabric designers for you.

Come alone or bring a friend and sew this lovely and useful Runaway Bag in a relaxing environment.
