Bra Sit ‘n Sew

If you haven’t had time to complete a bra since your last class or simply need a little refresher, this is an event designed just for you. The Bra Sit ‘n Sew is a one-day event for people who have already taken a bra class. Bring your machine and bra projects (half-finished or not even started) and enjoy a day of fun sewing with friends. There will be no formal class instruction – instead, Monica will be available all day to answer any questions you have and help you through any techniques that you may have forgotten, or even do fittings if you have changed sizes. Your job will be to have fun and sew and take advantage of having a little extra help available if you need it!

Prerequisites: Bras 101 and 102
