Bigfork Bay Cotton Co. Class

> Hi everyone.  Just wanted to let you know that I am going to be teaching a BFBCC class at the church across the street on Sept. 22.  9-3:30  Bring any of the patterns that you want to work on or let me know if you need one.  I can take 6-8 students.  I am going to charge $20.  You will buy your pattern if you don't already have one. > This first day you will make your top so you won't need your sewing machine. Each pattern is different so some may be easier and faster than others.  I have open sews if you want to come back and work on it again or start to do the sewing. The first one after the date of the 22nd will be Oct. 13.  It is a Sat. Open sew days are $8. > Please let me know if you are interested by Sept.1  Email or give me a call with any questions. >
