first, i will mention that i will be teaching two basic sewing classes this fall. thursday, october 14, from 6-8pm, as well as sunday, november 7, from 1-3pm. the class is for ages 14+ and is an introduction to sewing. if you have a machine you are afraid to use, think you'll break it, don't know what to do when it jams, are wondering how to wind a bobbin & when to backstitch, then this workshop is for you. the goal is to get you familiar (or more familiar) with the machine and to boost your confidence in using it. if you have a working sewing machine of your own you'd like help with, please bring it! (we will not be fixing machines.) there is table space to set up. there will be fabrics and notions to work on a small project to take home as well. to register for this, and all other workshops, visit that page at BHAA.
in addition to hosting the sewing workshops, blue house also has metal jewelry design, knitting, crochet, and screen printing workshops going on.
also at blue house... you can... rent studio space, join our monthly craft meet up, or reserve a tailgate party (since it's across the Big House!) really! all at blue house.
