“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.
