Great class!
Great, straightforward class that shows step by step in detail how to create this attractive and highly useful item. The teacher also throws in several insider tips that those with less sewing experience might not know. The class includes a printable pattern with a one-inch test square on it so you can make sure you've printed it out at the right size. I'm looking forward to getting a sewing machine and trying this pattern! Highly recommended!

Graphic Designer, Seamstress, Knitter - Ottawa, ON

Hello! My name is Jenn. I’m a graphic designer, photographer and a pattern, fabric and yarn obsessed seamstress and knitter living in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.

My love for fabric and patterns started when, as a young teen, my grandmother took me to a local fabric shop that had an entire wall dedicated to vintage fabrics. I took a few select yards home and re-made some of my favourite clothes using those fabrics and a 1960’s Singer Featherweight. My mom taught me to sew on that old Singer and also on her old beige Kenmore that’s as old as i am but still runs like a dream.

I sew and knit to stay sane but mainly because I value handmade. I want my girls to grow up appreciating the skill and time that people put into their handmade creations as much as I do. I’m all about supporting local; local businesses, makers and artists in whichever form they come.

As well as being a full-time graphic designer, I run a little shop called Once Upon an Extra Stitch and sell my wares at a variety of local craft shows and markets throughout the year.
