PROJECT FUNWAY is a place where children and adults learn to sew - in a very creative way. 

It is a lot more fun than how you learned in your high school Home Economics class! We are kinder, gentler, and a lot more fun!

Interested in our 

2019 PROJECT FUNWAY 

ADULT SERIES?


Four classes in each session.  If you have a group of four students, contact linda@projectfunway.com to schedule.  Sessions generally run Sept - Apr.


7 to 9:30 pm $195


Want to know how to mend that pile of clothing? Put an original hem on your own jeans? Make a professional decorator pillow? Fix the hem on that favorite blouse? Sew on a button properly?

 

Dust off that sewing machine or use one of our machines and come learn the sewing basics. This class is designed for adults who want to have “fun” while learning to sew. If your high school home economics class was not your favorite class, join PROJECT FUNWAY ADULT to give learning to sew a new twist! This is a practical series created to offer practical skills and mold to what the student wants!

 

We will be focusing on basic sewing skills and using them to create a detailed tote bag you will be proud to carry - and create again as gifts.


As always, we calibrate to the skill level of individuals.  Age 12 and up!  This class includes those that have never used a machine to those that are skilled, but a bit rusty.  Each student is kept very busy at THEIR level of skill.   You may take all three sessions and just keep moving forward.

Summer Camp season is now a memory. The warm days were filled with pattern pieces, fabric scraps, and imaginations filled with potential designs!  It was so fulfilling to see the projects come to life over a period of a week and the proud campers who relished in their achievements. 
As we march into a new school year, I am posting the Fall schedule for after-school classes.  "Jenny-from-the-block" will be back in the studio to assist me with classes, so if you are interested in securing a spot in the class, please do quickly as space is limited.
