#Dare2Sew

Did your dog chew a hole in your favourite sweatpants? Or have you always wanted to make a quilt for a loved one but did not know where to even start? Then come on over (virtually) and stitch together something great in this #Dare2Sew workshop, hosted by @cass.iocovelli.

In this workshop, participants will learn basic stitches and sewing how-tos. The leader will guide the participants through different sewing techniques that can be used to darn clothing and create new pieces. We will also start our own project together that participants will have the skills to complete by the end of the workshop.
