We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

In this four-session class, we’ll be sewing a ‘Range Backpack,’ which is great for any outing where you need to be hands free! The foldover top and closure keep things secure, while the front zippered pocket keeps essentials within easy reach. Adjustable straps make it wearable in any season. Find the endless style possibilities by using the hashtag #rangebackpack on social media. Our version is inspired by a Noodlehead® design.

Before the class, YOU will select your main fabric and your secondary fabric. It’s fun to choose complementary colors, but you can let your imagination run wild!

Registration Includes

Patient instruction and all materials. By the end of class, you will have completed a one-of-a-kind ‘Range Backpack.’

Skill Level
